Nothing but Net?

Despite heavy reliance on insecticide treated malaria nets as a means of reducing malaria transmission, heavy criticism has surfaced that the nets are a not-so-useful Band-Aid for a larger problem that can only be addressed by improved infrastructure. Further maligning the nets is a recent study from Senegal that shows many mosquitoes have become immune to the treated nets and are still managing to have damaging effects on public health.
