Correlating resistance to damage (RD) scores with long-lasting insecticide-treated net performance and longevity in various field conditions in Africa

Correlating resistance to damage (RD) scores with long-lasting insecticide-treated net performance and longevity in various field conditions in Africa

Objectives

The overall objective is to estimate the survivorship over time of different long-lasting nets under field conditions based upon their rates of attrition and physical integrity.  The survivorship of each net type will then be correlated with resistance-to-damage scores as estimated from laboratory textile tests.
