Indoor residual house‐spraying (IRS) mainly with dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT) was the principal method by which malaria was eradicated or greatly reduced in many countries in the world between the 1940s and 1960s. In sub‐Saharan Africa early malarial eradication pilot projects also showed that malaria is highly responsive to vector control by IRS but transmission could not be interrupted in the endemic tropical and lowland areas. As a result IRS was not taken to scale in most endemic… Expand
Impact of indoor residual spraying on malaria parasitaemia in the Bunkpurugu-Yunyoo District in northern Ghana
TLDR
The use of a more efficacious insecticide for IRS can reduce malaria parasitaemia among children less than 5 years-old in northern Ghana. Expand
Community-wide benefits of targeted indoor residual spray for malaria control in the Western Kenya Highland
TLDR
Vector control had significant indirect impact on the densely populated uphill areas when IRS was targeted to the high-risk valleys when targeting malaria transmission hotspots, suggesting targeted IRS as an effective tool in malaria control. Expand
Dramatic decrease in malaria transmission after large-scale indoor residual spraying with bendiocarb in Benin, an area of high resistance of Anopheles gambiae to pyrethroids.
TLDR
Bendiocarb was found to be a good alternative insecticide for IRS in Benin, in areas where An. Expand
Malaria Risk Factors in North West Tanzania: The Effect of Spraying, Nets and Wealth
TLDR
High malaria prevalence in some clusters and the limited protection given by pyrethroid IRS and LLINs suggest that it may be necessary to enhance established vector control activities and consider additional interventions. Expand
Seven years of regional malaria control collaboration--Mozambique, South Africa, and Swaziland.
TLDR
The Lubombo Spatial Development Initiative is a joint development program between the governments of Mozambique, Swaziland, and South Africa, which includes malaria control as a core component of the initiative and provides a strong argument for investment in regional malaria control. Expand
Indoor Residual Spraying of Insecticide and Malaria Morbidity in a High Transmission Intensity Area of Uganda
TLDR
IRS was associated with a reduction in malaria morbidity in an area of high transmission intensity in Uganda and the benefits appeared to be greatest after switching to a carbamate class of insecticide. Expand
Assessing indoor residual spraying for malaria control in Chikhwawa, Malawi, using exit traps in houses
Rationale Indoor residual spraying (IRS), using lambda-cyhalothrin, was piloted in Malawi in 2007 by the Presidents Malaria Initiative (PMI) in Nkhota-kota district. The Ministry of Health scaledExpand
The Effect of Indoor Residual Spraying on the Prevalence of Malaria Parasite Infection, Clinical Malaria and Anemia in an Area of Perennial Transmission and Moderate Coverage of Insecticide Treated Nets in Western Kenya
TLDR
Both IRS and ITNs are effective tools for reducing malaria burden and when implemented in an area of moderate to high transmission with moderate ITN coverage, there may be an added benefit of IRS. Expand
Effect of Indoor Residual Spraying on the Incidence of Malaria in Kaoma District of Western Zambia
Background : Indoor residual spraying (IRS), the application of a chemical to the internal walls of the structure in order to kill an insect that sits on the wall treated with such a chemical, is oneExpand
Preliminary examination of integrated vector management in a tropical rainforest area of Cameroon.
TLDR
Blackfly adult populations were reduced for several weeks following larvicide application but recovered when treatment was halted, and sporozoites were detected in mosquitoes sampled in exit traps in the untreated village than in the treated villages. Expand

DDT house spraying and re-emerging malaria
TLDR
It is recommended that the global response to burgeoning malaria rates allow for DDT residual house spraying where it is known to be effective and necessary, and Regulations and policies of industrialized countries and international agencies that block financial assistance to countries that use DDT for malaria control should be eliminated.

TLDR
Information on the prevalence, incidence, and geographical distribution of malaria in Zimbabwe is reviewed and endemicity of malaria is shown to be markedly influenced by altitude varying from hyperendemic in the low altitude areas to hypoendemic or absent on the central watershed. Expand
Effect of DDT on survival and blood feeding success of Anopheles arabiensis in northern Kwazulu, Republic of South Africa.
The effect of house spraying with DDT on blood-feeding and resting behavior of An. arabiensis in Natal Province, Republic of South Africa, was investigated. Indoor resting occurred in both controlExpand
Epidemiology in the strategies for malaria control.
TLDR
An essential element of this strategy is the prevention or control of malaria epidemics and the selective use of vector control, both of which have to be based on a solid knowledge of local epidemiology, the study of which has to rejoin the path abandoned fifty years ago. Expand

TLDR
Results suggested possible resistance to Fansidar, which has implications for tourists travelling to this area. Expand
Using a geographical information system to plan a malaria control programme in South Africa.
TLDR
Matching malaria control measures to specific strata of endemic malaria has provided the opportunity for more efficient malaria control in Mpumalanga province by enabling malaria risk at town and village level to be shown. Expand
MALARIA survey of South West Africa.

TLDR
The object of the survey was to determine the incidence of the disease as measured by spleen- and parasite-rates to ascertain the vectors and to make such general observations on their biology as would help to give a better understanding of the malaria problem. Expand
An experiment in the control of malaria and bilharziasis.

TLDR
The field teams, who are dual-purpose units, are employed throughout the whole year, and the methods of application of BHC and copper sulphate in the control of malaria and bilharziasis, respectively, are given. Expand
Malaria control: achievements, problems and strategies.
TLDR
An analysis of the conflicting tendencies which shaped the development of malaria control policies during the XX century are presented, which appear to have oscillated between calls for frontal attack in an all-out campaign and calls for sustainable gains, even if slow. Expand
