Three insecticides – the pyrethroid deltamethrin, the carbamate carbosulfan and the organophosphate chlorpyrifos-methyl – were tested on mosquito nets in experimental huts to determine their potential for introduction as malaria control measures.

Sleeping arrangements under long-lasting impregnated nets (LLIN) were recorded in 2467 households during the low malaria transmission season (May–June 2007) and the same families were followed up during the high malaria transmission season (December 2007–January 2008) in two malaria-endemic areas of Sri Lanka. Approximately 800 households each from the three main ethnic groups were studied. The number of families lost to follow-up was 68.

We assessed malaria infection in relation to age, altitude, rainfall, socio-economic factors and coverage of control measures in a representative sample of 11 437 people in Amhara, Oromia and SNNP regions of Ethiopia in December 2006–January 2007.
