At 27 − 30 months, LLINs already had a large total hole surface area that was equivalent to the oldest nets observed.
long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs)
These results confirm that the presence of cattle at the household level can significantly alter the local species composition, feeding and resting behaviour of malaria vectors.
Although, majority of studied population were aware of the symptoms and cause of malaria, a majority had misconceptions about LLINs.
Respondents considered both aesthetics and malaria protection important when deciding whether, when, and how to care for and repair nets.
Although topical repellents can provide individual protection against mosquitoes, the results of this meta-analysis indicate that topical repellents are unlikely to provide effective protection against malaria.
High repellent acceptability indicates their feasibility for malaria control in this community.
This study reaffirms the importance of context specific intervention planning.
In Cambodia, outdoor malaria transmission in villages and forest plots is important.
Olyset nets were used extensively in Sauri, western Kenya after five years of distribution, regardless of their physical condition.
Though moderate impact was achieved after five years of vector control, case management, and communications, prevalence remained high due to an inability to sufficiently scale-up coverage with either IRS or LLINs.
