Research project

Short description

The overall aim of this project is to increase our knowledge about the effects of policy interventions intended to reduce malaria incidence.

We investigate drivers behind the low usage rate of bed nets and the effects of increased access to information and treatment through “Community Health Workers”. Of particular interest are the individual behavioral aspects in relation to the growing problem with resistance of malaria drugs. The study is conducted in Kenya but the results are of importance and interest for other countries with severe problems with malaria.
