  1. Human mobility and malaria risk in the Naya river basin of Colombia.

    Article - En anglais

    This paper develops and tests a methodology for examining the manner and the extent to which human mobility can be associated with malaria risk within an endemic area.

    The paper presents entomological, epidemiological and mobility results obtained from macro data and micro data.

    Results indicate that malaria is concentrated in the delta zone of the Naya river basin where the circulation of people into this zone for economic reasons occurs at a time when vector densities are high.

    High human density combined with high vector density ensures continuous and intense transmission of malaria.
