Correction to: Malar J (2018) 17:239 https://doi.org/10.1186/s12936-018-2391-5

Following publication of the original article [1], the author has flagged errors that affect the scientific content of the article.

The errors concern Table 2 (page 6), Table 5 (page 9) and Table 6 (page 11) of the published article.

Firstly, with concern to Table 2, the errors concern the ‘Totals’ provided in the table. Please find below (the correct version of) the table, with the corrected ‘Totals’ data highlighted in italics:

Table 2 Reasons for loss of long-lasting insecticide nets over a 2-year follow-up period in Ethiopia

Regarding Tables 5 and 6, the error on the footnotes of the published tables is: “NA not applicable when P < 0.25”.

The footnotes on Tables 5 and 6 should read as: “NA not applicable when P > 0.25”.
