Scope of The activity

As a follow-up to the Medical Entomology training sessions, a new on-line activity has been devised within MediLabSecure.

The main objectives are:
  •  to maintain the mosquitoes species determination among the routine activities
  • assess the efficiency and accuracy of mosquito identification by all the medical entomology laboratories of the MediLabSecure network, 

How does it work?

As set of pictures from different mosquitos has been prepared and proposed to the MediLabSecure network members - and beyond- for identification.

Every 2 months, an unknown mosquito picture is proposed for identification. A couple of days are provided to submit responses through an on-line questionnaire.

The results are analyzed and reported to participants the following month, accompanied by  a mosquito fact-sheet focusing on the characteristics of the given species, its geographical distribution, the species not to be confused with, etc.

Let's identify!
