A New Method for Preventing Malaria DeathseBook - 1996
A finely spun net could prevent as many as one-third of all child deaths in Africa, reports IDRC's new publication, Net Gain. Studies conducted in The Gambia, Ghana, and Kenya show that the insecticide-treated mosquito net reduced the mortality rate of children under 5 years of age by up to 63 percent. Net Gain reviews and discusses the development of the treated mosquito net, focusing on the technology, its implementation, and its promotion.
