Malaria modules 3 and 4


The μGnome has finished preparing Malaria module 3 and Malaria module 4. These cover public health, travel health and expedition medicine aspects of malaria and vector biology. The two mini-lectures are presented here to help those studying for the FACTM pt 1 exam later this year. They complement modules 1 and 2.

  1. Thanks for the DTMH flashbacks Tim. I still think there is something distinctly malign about the name 'anthropophagus'….

  2. Yes, the Latin derivation makes it sound a bit like "man-eating Anopheles". There must be a bit of gender rivalry going on there, since it's always the female Anopheles that goes for the blood meal. Maybe it's a good thing we don't have endemic malaria in Oz to worry about as well.
