NetWorks project vector control assessment in Greater sub-Mekong RegionPublication Date:
Malaria Consortium was commissioned by NetWorks, a five-year project funded by the President's Malaria Initiative, to conduct a rapid appraisal of the malaria prevention strategies in three countries: Myanmar/Burma, Cambodia and Thailand (border areas).
An assessment of current national program prevention strategies (including LLIN and other personal protection measures) in Myanmar/Burma, Cambodia and Thailand was conducted, with a focus on:
- Improved LLIN distribution strategies within both public and commercial sector tailored to national and sub-national context
- Private sector approaches
- Alternative personal protection approaches
- Behaviour change strategies that would promote consistent use of mosquito nets as well as improved net longevity
- Monitoring and evaluation strategies and methods to monitor net ownership and use
- Operational research priority list
The key findings from desk reviews, interviews, discussions, and field visits conducted in Myanmar/Burma, Cambodia and Thailand have been compiled into this document.
