Since the implementation of Roll Back Malaria, the widespread use of insecticide-treated nets (ITNs) and indoor residual spraying (IRS) is thought to have played a major part in the decrease in mortality and morbidity achieved in malaria-endemic regions.

Increasingly, malaria vectors are also showing changes in vector behaviour in response to current indoor chemical vector control interventions.
