Coating formulation change leads to inferior performance of long-lasting insecticidal nets in Papua New Guinea

Nakei Bubun, Evodia Anetul, Melanie Koinari, Timothy W. Freeman & Stephan Karl
Abstract Background Long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs) play a key role in reducing malaria transmission in endemic countries. In a previous study, the authors demonstrated a substantial decrease in the bioefficacy of LLINs for malaria prevention delivered to Papua New Guinea (PNG) between 2013 and 2019. This coincided with a rise in malaria cases in the country. The present study was aimed at determining the underlying cause of the reduced bioefficacy observed in these LLINs. The...

Investigating health service availability and readiness for antenatal testing and treatment for HIV and syphilis in Papua New Guinea

Olga PM Saweri, Neha Batura, Justin Pulford, M. Mahmud Khan, Xiaohui Hou, William S Pomat, Andrew J Vallely & Virginia Wiseman
Abstract Background Papua New Guinea (PNG) has one of the highest burdens of HIV and syphilis in pregnancy in the Asia-Pacific region. Timely and effective diagnosis can alleviate the burden of HIV and syphilis and improve maternal and newborn health. Supply-side factors related to implementation and scale up remain problematic, yet few studies have considered their impact on antenatal testing and treatment for HIV and syphilis. This study explores health service availability and readiness for...

Additional file 1: Table S1. PermaNet® 2.0 samples randomly selected for combustion ion chromatography including their 24h mortality and total polymer fluorine content. Table S2. PermaNet® 2.0 samples randomly selected for WHO wash-resistance tests including their average 24h mortality (7 samples) at 0 washes. Figure S1. Cone bioassay mortality observed in FC-coated (pre-2012) vs non-FC coated (post-2012) LLINs in the present study. The association between coating formulation and bioefficacy is perfect i.e., all non-PFC coated...

Tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS-attributed mortalities and associated sociodemographic factors in Papua New Guinea: Evidence from the comprehensive health and epidemiological surveillance system

Bang Nguyen PHAM, Nora Abori, Vinson D. Silas, Ronny Jorry, Chalapati Rao, Anthony D. Okely & William Pomat
Tuberculosis (TB) and HIV/AIDS are public health concerns in Papua New Guinea (PNG). This study examines TB and HIV/AIDS mortalities and associated sociodemographic factors in PNG. Method: As part of a longitudinal study, verbal autopsy (VA) interviews were conducted using the WHO 2016 VA Instrument to collect data of 926 deaths occurred in the communities within the catchment areas of the Comprehensive Health and Epidemiological Surveillance System from 2018-2020. InterVA-5 cause of deaths analytic tool...
