World Mosquito Day 2022
This World Mosquito Day, we are taking a journey around the world to visit some of the experts involved in mosquito rearing, culture, and human-malaria transmission. Each year, 20th August is a global commemoration of the discovery in 1897 that female Anopheles mosquitoes transmit malaria between humans. Since then, World Mosquito Day presents us with an opportunity to raise awareness of the dangers of malaria-carrying mosquitoes and shine a spotlight on ongoing efforts in the fight against the world’s deadliest creature. Our four speakers will be followed by a Q&A session chaired by Dr Corine Ngufor.
