CONTEXT Insecticide-treated bednets reduce malaria transmission and child morbidity and mortality in short-term trials, but this impact may not be sustainable. Previous investigators have suggested that bednet use might paradoxically increase mortality in older children through delayed acquisition of immunity to malaria. OBJECTIVES To determine whether adherence to and public health benefits of insecticide-treated bednets can be sustained over time and whether bednet use during infancy… CONTINUE READING
