Senegal, like the African countries, the transmission of vector-borne diseases is mainly related to the rhythm of the rains and is generally carried out during the rainy season and at the beginning of the dry season. Thus the floods favor the proliferation and the maintenance of the breeding sites and consequently, the increase of the density of the vector populations which could lead to a transmission of the diseases such as malaria, the Zika, the dengue, etc .. Longer and more important. We did a recent study of vector collection in the Kaolack area and we were able to identify some potential sites. Thus with the help of Globe Observer, this project will allow us to identify the different cottages in the Kaolack region and identify the different vectors of diseases.

Great Job!!
Your research very interesting.

I just wonder what is the most frequent positive container (container with mosquito)? Do you have any plan for reducing mosquito by applying the results from you research study?

Have a nice day :-)
