Aims of the Medical Entomology course:

This course will provide the fundamental information necessary for understanding the role of arthropod vectors in the transmission of different pathogens to human and livestock.

The course further enhances the knowledge of their breeding biology and control measure.

Following a breif review of the general morphology, life cycle and classification of arthropods, individual groups of medical importance are considered in detail in regard to the recognition of important species, the epidemiology and pathogensis of associated diseases, and the principles and methods of vector control.
