    Trans R Soc Trop Med Hyg 94:28-32. 2000
    ..Further elucidation of M. sorbens behavioural ecology and the development of sustainable strategies to control these flies should be a priority. It is likely that M. sorbens is the principal insect vector of trachoma in The Gambia...

    Department of Biological Sciences, University of Durham, UK
    Trop Med Int Health 5:515-27. 2000
    ..Each of these interventions offers additional public health and other benefits in its own right. Further research on the routes of transmission, the role of hygiene and means of sustainable fly control should be a priority...

    Trop Med Int Health 8:512-7. 2003
    ..Ceilings are likely to be well accepted and may be of greatest benefit in areas of low to moderate transmission and when used in combination with other malaria control strategies...
