Net use, care and repair practices following a universal distribution campaign in Mali

While the Government of Mali and implementing partners have made strides to ensure high net coverage, some gaps remain related to communication messaging of correct and consistent net use throughout the year, and on improving net care and repair behavior.

Impact of a Spatial Repellent on Malaria Incidence in Two Villages in Sumba, Indonesia

A randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled study was conducted to examine the effect of spatial repellent (SR) in households at risk of malaria in Indonesia. Malaria infections occurred in 61 subjects living in placebo households and 31 subjects living in SR coil households, suggesting a 52% protective effect of SR. The findings provide evidence of SR public health benefit and support a larger trial statistically powered to detect those effects.
