dc.description.abstractDespite the rapid decline in malaria worldwide over the last decade, Sub-Saharan Africa still accounts for about 90 percent of malaria-related deaths.1 A primary reason why families choose not to purchase bed nets or other products that can protect them from malaria-infected mosquitoes is that they can’t afford them. In Uganda we found evidence that the additional income generated by a large-scale agricultural extension program reduced malaria infections by increasing rates of bed net ownership. This result shows that even unrelated programs that increase household income can play a role in reducing malaria infection.en_US
