Abstract

This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (Intervention). The objectives are as follows:
1. Evaluate whether adding PBO to pyrethroid LLINs increases the epidemiological and entomological effectiveness of the nets.
2. Compare the effects of PBO-LLINs currently in commercial development or on the market with their non-PBO equivalent in relation to:
a. malaria infection (prevalence or incidence);
b. entomological outcomes.
