Node-level interventions determine what will be distributed to nodes to reduce the spread of a disease. For example, spraying larvicide in a village to kill mosquito larvae is a node-level malaria intervention. Sometimes this can be an intermediate intervention that schedules another intervention. Node-level disease outbreaks are also configured as “interventions”.
The following node-level interventions are available for use with the malaria simulation type.
The following node-level interventions are commonly used for vector control in malaria simulations.
