Variation in the efficacy of insecticide-treated bednets in Kilifi, Kenya


  • Alice Kamau

    KEMRI-Wellcome Trust Research Programme

Project summary

Alice is a statistician who aims to examine in detail the impact of long-term versus short-term insecticide-treated bednet (ITN) use in survival analyses and logistic regression analyses of the risks of febrile malaria. She also aims to identify the protection conferred by ITNs against febrile malaria in 'units' of time and space. This will provide insight into the efficacy of ITNs in relation to changes in mosquito feeding behaviours. Alice will be working with Dr Philip Bejon and Professor Anthony Scott at the KEMRI-Wellcome Trust Research Programme.

This grant was awarded under the scheme's previous name of Master's Fellowships in Public Health and Tropical Medicine.
