Vector control community participation and malaria morbidity in the Bagamoyo District of rural Tanzania

Vector control community participation and malaria morbidity in the Bagamoyo District of rural Tanzania

Research and Reviews in Parasitology 58(3/4): 209-215

Large scale use of insecticide impregnated mosquito net (IMN) was implemented in the Bagamoyo district (13 villages) of Tanzania throught the local Malaria Committee to consolidate the key issue of sustainability. Ninety-one percent of the population were covered by permethrin IMN sold at a subsidy price. Committee members received some remuneration for their work. There was a 3-fold decline in attacks of malaria fever and a 2-fold decrease in anaemia among IMN-protected children.
