[Comment] New opportunities for malaria vector control

Owing to the scale up of malaria control interventions, malaria morbidity and mortality have declined, with much of the decline attributed to the scale up of long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs).1 However, the 2017 World Malaria Report2 indicated that progress in reducing the burden of malaria has stalled and, in some countries, malaria cases and deaths are increasing. The causes of this stagnation are likely multifactorial and include stagnant donor investment, as well as the rise and spread of insecticide resistance.
