Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: VM
implementation of new vector control tools (insecticide treated curtains and jar covers) through the existing routine vector control programme
Other: Insecticide treated curtains and insecticide treated covers
The study is comparing the introduction of two new vector control tools (insecticide treated curtains and insecticide treated covers) through two different distribution strategies. These tools are curently not in use in the routine programmes of the concerned countries.
Experimental: PM
implementation of new vector control tools (insecticide treated covers and curtains) through partnerships
Other: Insecticide treated curtains and insecticide treated covers
The study is comparing the introduction of two new vector control tools (insecticide treated curtains and insecticide treated covers) through two different distribution strategies. These tools are curently not in use in the routine programmes of the concerned countries.
