Tusting, L.S. and Bottomley, C. and Gibson, H. and Kleinschmidt, I. and Tatem, A.J. and Lindsay, S.W. and Gething, P.W. (2017) 'Housing improvements and malaria risk in sub-Saharan Africa : a multi-country analysis of survey data.', PLoS medicine., 14 (2). e1002234.

We tested the hypothesis that the odds of malaria infection are lower in modern, improved housing compared to traditional housing in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA).
