Abstract

Abstract.

According to the WHO, unmanaged insecticide resistance may lead to increases in malaria-related mortality and morbidity. Bangladesh, having made significant progress in malaria control efforts, has recently seen an upswing in malaria cases—58% of which occurred in Bandarban district. Toward identifying entomological drivers of increased malaria, an entomological survey including susceptibility to the insecticides in use was conducted in Bandarban. , the primary vector of malaria, was found to be resistant to both permethrin and deltamethrin—with only 29% and 55% mortality at 30 minutes, respectively. Intervention strategies in this area—all based on pyrethroids, may need to be reevaluated toward closing this gap in protection and increasing intervention efficacy.
