Impregnated nets cannot fully substitute for DDT: field effectiveness of malaria prevention in Solomon Islands






Policy Research Working Paper World Bank (3044): 28 pp.

Impregnated nets cannot fully substitute for DDT: field effectiveness of malaria prevention in Solomon Islands

The incidence of malaria in Solomon Islands has been declining since 1992, but there is a large geographical variation between areas in the incidence level and the rate of decline. The authors used a mix of control interventions, including DDT residual house spraying and insecticide-treated mosquito nets, to examine the effectiveness of malaria prevention and control methods in the country from 1993-98.
