NetWorks Project - USA and various countries

NetWorks was a USAID/Washington global project initiated by the Johnnetworkss Hopkins University Centre for Communications Programs (JHUCCP) implemented together with The Malaria Consortium and Catholic Relief Services. NetWorks partnered with USAID missions to improve and establish sustainable access to and use of long lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs). NetWorks aimed to build sustainable LLIN systems that bridge the key technical areas of advocacy, policy, distribution, monitoring, and communications in malaria endemic countries

NetWorks was designed to be flexible yet comprehensive and dynamic in order to help empower national governments, USAID missions and their partners (civil society and the private sector) and other development partners to create sustainable systems to allow access, enable ownership and promote appropriate use of LLINs and other malaria prevention technologies.

MEDA was a subcontractor to The Malaria Consortium, providing expertise in understanding the potential of the private sector for impact on continuous distribution of LLINs.
