Household spraying against malaria in southern Africa: cost-effective?

Abstract

In certain parts of southern Africa, malaria exacts a high cost. The price is paid not only by communities and government health services, but also by industry through lost productivity. Identifying cost effective ways of reducing malaria can bring economic as well as heath benefits. Indoor residual spraying (IRS) is known to be effective against malaria, but few researchers have examined its cost-effectiveness.
