Targeted spraying to prevent malaria in low transmission setting halves cost of current practice

A study by Wits scientists and partners has proved that a targeted malaria transmission prevention intervention is not inferior to the ‘blanket’ approach. Furthermore, the targeted Indoor Residual Spraying (IRS) intervention was safe, less costly, and more cost-effective compared with standard ‘blanket’ IRS, meaning savings could potentially be reallocated to other malaria control and elimination […]
