Technology Implementation

Larval control through source reduction and routine application of larvicides was a key intervention in eradicating Vector Born Diseases (VBD) in many parts of the world; meanwhile this control technique has been largely neglected in recent decades in sub-Saharan Africa, partly, because of perceived difficulty of identifying larval habitats in rural areas. Larval control can be effective where larval habitats occur seasonally or/are relatively limited and well defined. From many years’ experience in this field, it is clear that the distribution of mosquito breeding sites is different from region to region and this distribution depends mainly on the citizen activities.

Our novel technique solves this difficult equation; it can control the malaria vector (mosquito larvae) with highest maintenance of water quality and environmental impact. Using a formula of FDA approved components is the most desired form of unusual photo-pesticide. SAFE (Sunlight Activated Formulated Extract) is our novel formula used for this novel technique in controlling the disease mosquito vector. This formula has enough characteristics to be used at any type of breeding sites of mosquitoes. We are using our own strategy to apply this technique to be succeeded wherever and whenever we need it.

Vector Control Program (VCP) and Malaria vector control program (MVCP) are designed to control Vector Born Diseases outdoors by using (SAFE) as environmental friendly photosensitizer to control the larvae of Anopheles, Culex , Aedes.

Control of the malaria parasite in the vector is the key point of Vector Born Diseases control and prevention of re-infection cycle. InRaD Corporation is the exclusive provider of the material and Technique Implementer for mosquito control.

The implication of this technique is the outcome of an intensive research program started since 1996 in Egypt and ended recently with a complete national program in Sudan, Southern Sudan, Uganda, and Ethiopia through cooperation with the authorized government and non-government professionals in the field of malaria research in these countries.
