Modeling malaria control intervention effect in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa using intervention time series analysis

The change of the malaria control intervention policy in South Africa (SA), re-introduction of dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT), may be responsible for the low and sustained malaria transmission in KwaZulu-Natal (KZN). This study evaluated the effect of the re-introduction of DDT on malaria in KZN and suggested practical ways the province can strengthen its already existing malaria control and elimination efforts to achieve zero malaria transmission.
