It explores the advantages of cluster randomisation, with special attention given to evaluating the effects of 5/5(1). Tropical diseases, especially those of infectious etiology, are particularly prevalent in areas defined geographically as tropical and subtropical (loosely defined as the area between 30° north and 30° south of Cited by: 2.

Many interventions against infectious diseases have geographically diffuse effects. This leads to contamination between arms in cluster-randomized trials (CRTs). Pathogen elimination is the goal of many intervention programs against infectious agents, but contamination means that standard CRT designs and analyses do not provide inferences about the potential of interventions to interrupt.
