Susceptibility status of malaria vectors to insecticides commonly used for malaria control in Tanzania

Tropical Medicine & International Health, 05/08/2012

However, the emergency of focal points with insecticide resistance is alarming. Continued monitoring is essential to ensure early containment of resistance, particularly in areas that recorded resistance or marginal susceptibility and those with heavy agricultural and public health use of insecticides.
