Bed-nets or spraying? Cost analyses of malaria control in the Solomon Islands


, : Bed-nets or spraying? Cost analyses of malaria control in the Solomon Islands. Health Policy and Planning 7(4): 382-386

The cost of 2 malaria control interventions, DDT house-spraying and permethrin-impregnated bed-nets, were compared for a population of 7712 people in Florida Islands, Solomon Islands, during July 1986-December 1989. The following data on operation, management and materials were collected, with their costs: personnel, salary and wages; transport, fuel and oil; spare parts, repairs and maintenance and other facilities; equipment and materials; total time taken per cycle.
