Bed net ownership and use by country mapped over time (Global), 1999-2008

More children protected from malaria by bed nets

Bed net use is up across Africa, protecting more children under 5 from disease-carrying mosquitos. Below you can see the progress African countries with significant populations at risk for malaria have made in bed net ownership between 1999 and 2008.
The estimates on bed net ownership are from research published in PLoS Medicine in August 2010.
