Figure 3

Relative change in personal and community level protection, whenever IRS is introduced into communities with pre-existing high coverage of untreated nets or long lasting insecticide treated nets. The labels on the x-axis refer to the additional complementary intervention in each scenario. The relative change can be interpreted as fold reduction of residual transmission, which is equivalent to the reciprocal of the relative residual EIR (entomological inoculation rate) for an average community member.
