Current methods of delivering ITNs, i.e., one mass campaign every five years and regular distribution of ITNs from health center can barely maintain the current effective coverage.
insecticide-treated nets (ITNs)
Using a non-absorbing boundary and reporting average results from sufficiently large number of simulation runs are strongly recommended for malaria ABMs.
Delivery of ITNs through antenatal clinics presents fewer problems than delivery of IPTp.
Caution should be exercised before over-interpreting most existing reports of increased frequency of behavioural traits which enable mosquitoes to evade fatal contact with insecticides
The 2011 World Malaria Report showed welcome progress in the fight against the world's most important vector-borne disease.
The present study has provided some evidence for the success of ITNs/IRS combined malaria control measures in Aneno Shisho kebele in Adami Tulu District.
Lives saved have become a standard metric to express health benefits across interventions and diseases.
The campaign had a significant impact by increasing ITN coverage and reducing inequity in ownership and use. Free ITN distribution campaigns should be sustained to increase equitable coverage.
Malaria is one of the most common vector-borne diseases widespread in the tropical and subtropical regions.
The observed multiple-resistance coupled with the occurrence of high kdr frequency in populations of An. arabiensis could profoundly affect the malaria vector control programme in Ethiopia.
