Favored by Plasmodium, malaria is a disease representing a major public health challenge in the four corners of the globe and particularly on the African continent where 2,70,000 people live without protecting themselves from it. As a result, the World Health Organization (WHO) counts nearly one million victims every year. While the fight against this scourge has increased in recent years around the war against mosquitoes, insects on their side have be come more resistant than in the past and no longer systematically succumb to all insecticides.
