- “Combining indoor residual spraying and long-lasting insecticidal nets for preventing malaria: Cluster randomized trial in Ethiopia”
Malaria is a disease that contributes substantially to illness and death in children in sub-Saharan Africa. This project aims to inform national and global policymakers on the combined use of indoor residual spraying and long- lasting insecticidal nets in controlling malaria. It will help to build essential capacity for Ethiopia, and represents collaboration between the University of Bergen, Addis Ababa University, Hawassa University, and the Ethiopian Ministry of Health (Malaria Control).
