Vector control remains an important component of malaria control, particularly in Africa where most infant deaths occur. Among the different methods, insecticide-treated bednets seem to be a suitable way to reduce morbidity and child mortality in endemic areas. To facilitate their large-scale use and to investigate alternative vector control methods, the authors propose these current directions of research that are already being explored in Africa through a collaborating network involving several African countries: (1) vector genetics, (2) insecticide resistance and (3) vector control strategies.
