The Global Good Fund at Intellectual Ventures; Durham University; The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture; and the Medical Research Council Unit, The Gambia (MRCG) are collaborating to conduct a pilot field trial of doors and windows designed to exclude mosquitos from houses while also providing security, indoor comfort, and privacy. The aim of this effort is to reduce indoor transmission of vector-borne diseases such as malaria by excluding mosquitos from homes. Outcomes from the field evaluation in sub-Saharan Africa will inform future design iterations.
