Abstract

In this paper, we present results which are part of larger study carried out in five districts of the eastern Indian state of Orissa, where endemic malaria represents one of the most serious public health concerns. One of the study's objectives, designed in collaboration with the micro-lender Bharat Integrated Social Welfare Agency, was to evaluate the possibility of using specifically-designed consumer loan contracts to increase ITN ownership and retreatment rates.
