The Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (TDR) and the Global Vector Hub have developed the online platform Global Atlas of Medical Entomology Schooling (GAMES), which lists 26 medical entomology courses offered both on-campus and through distance learning in 32 countries across all WHO regions. The list includes trainings in seven different languages.
A 2016 research found out that most entomology courses available took place in the Americas, and two-thirds of them were in English. Online information was also limited. The GAMES course directory aims at making studies in the entomological field more accessible to low- and middle-income countries, enhancing scientists’ capacity to fight neglected tropical diseases and other vector-borne diseases in these regions.
Access to GAMES is free. Visit the website to learn more about course dates, outlines, fees and languages.
