Correction to: Malar J (2018) 17:298 https://doi.org/10.1186/s12936-018-2450-y

Following publication of the original article [1], the author flagged that the clause “and competing household priorities” was missing from the second sentence of the conclusion section of the Abstract; while this clause was in the Conclusion section of the main article text.

The consequence of this error was that there was a discrepancy between the implications of the Abstract conclusion and that of the main Conclusion of the article.

As such, the article [1] has now been updated to modify this error such that “and competing household priorities” is in the Abstract conclusion as well as the Conclusion of the main article text.

We apologize for this processing error.
