This Atlas presents key selected Malaria findings from the 2011-12 Tanzania HIV/AIDS and Malaria Indicator Survey. The 2011-12 THMIS included questions on mosquito net ownership, use, and type of net. Overall, 95 percent of households owned at least one of any type of mosquito net. Ownership of mosquito netsdid not differ markedly by urban-rural residence.
Significant advances have been made in the prevention of malaria through the use of insecticide treated mosquito nets (ITNs), including long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs). The Use of treated mosquito nets significantly reduces malaria transmission.
