  • Demonstrated the impact of the elimination strategy using mass drug administration, at scale (Lancet. 2018;391(10133):1916-26. doi: 10.1016/S0140-6736(18)30792-X).
  • The Malaria Elimination Task Force (METF) has continued to operate in a major effort to eliminate malaria from Karen State while simultaneously carrying out operational research. P. falciparum was eliminated in the majority of the village tracks in the area and efforts continue in the more remote northern township despite logistic difficulties and the chronic instability.
  • Developed effective strategies for rapid malaria elimination in a context of antimalarial resistance.
  • Documented the impact of generalized access to early diagnosis and treatment on malaria incidence in 4 townships of Eastern Myanmar (>1200 villages) and contribution of targeted MDA in hotspots (Lancet. 2018;391(10133):1916-26. doi: 10.1016/S0140-6736(18)30792-X).
  • Describing the spatio-temporal distribution of malaria incidence and prevalence hotspots.
  • Lymphatic filariasis prevalence and risk-factors in METF malaria prevalence surveys.
  • Relationships between malaria prevalence, incidence and temporal trends in villages with access to early diagnosis and treatment.
