Vector Control in HAT

Reference work entry

Definition

Intervention aiming at reduction of disease transmission by killing the vector. Mechanical traps or targets with or without insecticide and/or odor baits are the most commonly used method in trypanosomiasis control, but other options are the use of live baits (insecticide-treated cattle), aerial spraying and the release of sterile male tsetse flies where tsetse populations have been suppressed using another technique.
