Reports of long-lasting insecticidal bed nets catching on fire : a threat to bed net users and to successful malaria control?

Fabrice Chandre

Abstract

Background: One of the control tools to reduce malaria transmission is the use of LLINs. However, several studies show that household bed net use is quite low. A study was developed to better understand the cultural factors that might explain these gaps in Benin. One reason mentioned is that bed nets can catch on fire and cause harm. This paper presents a summary of these findings, their analysis and the ensuing issues.
