Mass Bed Net Distribution Campaigns Across Sub-Saharan Africa Can Improve Health Equity

Center for Global Health Policy’s “Science Speaks”: Mass bed net distribution campaigns reduce health disparities across sub-Saharan Africa
In a guest post, Courtney Chiaparas, writing for MEASURE Evaluation, discusses a study that examined the effectiveness of bed net distribution campaigns to prevent and control malaria across sub-Saharan Africa. Chiaparas writes, “The study makes a case for future investments in malaria control via national distribution, shown to increase access to [insecticide treated nets (ITNs)] across socioeconomic subgroups. Campaigns providing free insecticide treated nets to mass populations should continue” (6/19).
