Insecticide Resistance Management in Nsuhyia

Watch Keziah L. Malm and Fredros Okumu explain how Insecticide Resistance Management works in the fictional village of Nsuhyia.
In the fictional village of Nsuhyia, the vector control interventions seem to have become less effective. How can this be proactively addressed?

In this video, Keziah and Fredros explain the context, while also introducing a week in which you will explore answers to this question. Looking at the example of Nsuhyia, you will be able to assess the rationale for implementing Insecticide Resistance Management (IRM) schemes. The reasons for the necessity of a new approach were introduced in the previous weeks.

This week, you will hopefully be able to collect enough insights to try out the game ‘Resistance 101’ again. Maybe this will help you get to the next level? We hope that the facts presented this week will help you make informed decisions when it comes to IRM in the real world.
