Making insecticide treated nets available to the poorest households in Nigeria

Abstract

Insecticide-treated mosquito nets (ITNs) are a cost-effective way to control malaria, especially among young children. But without equity in access to nets, this powerful public health tool will have limited impact. In Achi, Nigeria, the factors affecting people’s willingness to pay for ITNs were examined. Viable alternatives to user fees and a universal subsidy should target the most vulnerable.
