Excerpt
In a community-based malaria control project covering a predominantly Muslim population in the United Republic of Tanzania, difficulty was encountered in motivating people to have their mosquito nets reimpregnated with insecticide at six-monthly intervals. Education on this subject was therefore provided in mosques during Friday noon prayers. People who attended these services considered them an appropriate forum for discussing health concerns and viewed them as a credible source of information The spread of resistance to chloroquine in the malaria parasite (Plasmodiumf,a falciparum) throughout sub-Saharan Africa, and the side- and relatively high costs associated with other drugs active against it, have stimulated a search for alternative methods of controlling the disease. Bednets, impregnated every six months with pyrethroid insecticides, offer a simple, inexpensive solution ( 1 ) .
