Bed nets best option against malaria: WHO 18.11.2016 deccanherald.com
Though they remind everyone of a bygone era, bed nets continue to be the best weapon against malaria, a World Health Organisation-backed research has found. A five-year investigation has unearthed fresh evidence on the effectiveness of bed nets, laced with an insecticide to kill mosquito and protect people from malaria, which continues to be one of the world's biggest public health threats. Researchers found people who slept under bed nets in 340 locations across five countries—Benin, Cameroon, India, Kenya and Sudan—had significantly lower rates of malaria infection than those who did not use a net, even though mosquitoes showed resistance to insecticides everywhere.
