Two review authors independently assessed trials for eligibility, analyzed risk of bias, and extracted data. We used risk ratio (RR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI). We stratified by type of insecticide: ‘non‐pyrethroid‐like', as this could improve malaria control better than adding IRS insecticides that have the same way of working as the insecticide on ITNs (‘pyrethroid‐like'). We used subgroup analysis of ITN usage in the trials to explore heterogeneity. We assessed the certainty of evidence using the GRADE approach.
