Bed Nets More Cost Effective Than Insecticide For Malaria Prevention, Study Says

A [published in the] medical journal The Lancet said donors should invest their limited resources on additional bed nets as the most cost-effective solution to tackling malaria, costing an average of $2.20 per person compared to $6.70 for insecticide…” (Guilbert, 12/9).
