Project Title: Micro-heterogeneity of Malaria Dynamics and Associated Factors in Soin Mid-altitude Fringe of Kericho County, Kenya

Project Description: One of the impediments towards Malaria elimination and eventual eradication is the micro-spatial and micro-temporal heterogeneity in its determinants and thus outcomes resulting in pockets of transmission even after intensive interventions. This phenomenon tends to get pronounced as malaria transmission wanes as the cases are in countries on elimination and eradication course. Thus, characterizing and quantifying this heterogeneity will help in the development of robust, focused and effectively high impact intervention models incorporating this phenomenon.
