Medical Entomology – Field and Laboratory

November 25 - November 29

Basic Medical Entomology – Short course

The course is intended to provide basic knowledge on public health entomology both in the field and laboratory aspects. On completion of this course, it will help the learners in improving vector-borne disease (VBD) surveillance, insect species identification (Taxonomy) and vector control skills.

  • Module 1:  Basic Entomology
    • Basic definitions and terminologies (Entomology & Epidemiology) – Commonly known Vector insects and VBDs – Modes of VBD transmission-Biology and ecology of medical important Arthropods
  • Module 2:  Insect collection techniques
    • Vector surveillance Concepts – Sampling Methods – Entomological measures
    • Insect Collection tools – Adult and Immature insect Collection techniques for various medically important arthropods (Mosquitoes, ticks, mites, sand flies, flea and other arthropods)
    • Port surveillance – Xenomonitoring – VBD outbreak Investigation
    • Application of Geographical information system (GIS) on vector Surveillance and control
  • Module 3:  Insect species identification (Taxonomy)
    • Taxonomic classification of phylum: Arthropoda – Class: Insecta – Order: Diptera and Acarina
    • Morphological and molecular identification of medically important Insect species in India; Anopheles sp., Culex sp., Aedes sp. and Heamaphysalis sp.
    • Storage-Preservation-Transportation
  • Module 4:  Laboratory methods and vector control
    • Infection screening on vector insects: various screening methods
    • Molecular techniques: Insect sample preparation, nucleic acid extraction and PCR
    • Vector control principle and types of vector control (Mechanical, Chemical – Biological – Environmental management and Transgenic insect technique) – Integrated Vector Management (IVM)
    • Personal protective measures – Insecticide resistance and management
    • Vector control programmes
