INDOOR RESIDUAL SPRAYING (IRS)

As recently as 2003, only 12 countries (29%) in Africa implemented IRS, mainly to prevent and control epidemic malaria

In 2007, 25 out of the 42 (60%) malaria endemic countries in WHO / AFRO have included IRS in their national strategy for malaria control

In the 2006-2007 malaria season a total of 5 million units/structures were sprayed, protecting 21 million people

Challenges remain:  Shortage and  inconsistent financing

Routine Spraying

No IRS

Pilot spraying or plans to pilot

Non-AFRO
