Malaria in pregnancy is a crucial public health concern due to the enormous risk it poses to maternal and newborn health.

This study investigated the individual, community and society level factors associated with ITN use among pregnant women in sub-Saharan Africa.

Indoor residual spraying (IRS) is one of the main malaria vector control strategies in Mozambique alongside the distribution of insecticide treated nets. As part of the national insecticide resistance management strategy, Mozambique introduced SumiShield™ 50WG, a third generation IRS product, in 2018. Its residual efficacy was assessed in southern Mozambique during the 2018-2019 malaria season.
