  • Product Description

Insecticide- treated nets are the most powerful malaria control tool if used correctly. Yet up to date, malaria continues to be the leading cause of child mortality and morbidity in Sub-saharan Africa. This book provides insights on intra-household factors that affect the utilization of ITNs in households with children under five. These factors that affected utilization include; type of household structure, number of people sleeping in the household, intra-household gender relations, sleeping arrangements, disruption of sleeping patterns due to visitors and cultural rituals and functions. These factors affect consistency in utilization of ITNs and proper deployment. Therefore, public-private partnership needs to be adapted by policy makers in health departments to ensure availability of ITNs and insecticides in local shops and other outlets including arrangements at village level to re-treat the nets, the economic level of caregivers should be boosted to counteract the financial inadequacies, adoption of a behavior change strategy to transform caregivers' perceptions, cultural beliefs, practices, customs and attitudes; and massive education of the community
