The combined use of indoor residual spraying (IRS) and long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs) for malaria reduction in endemic rural Tanzania

Objectives

The aim of this research is to determine whether it is necessary to maintain IRS once malaria transmission has been reduced or whether following the scaling-up of LLINs the IRS can be withdrawn and low transmission rates can be maintained equally well with LLINs alone.
