Netmark - Nets for malaria prevention

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

NetMark represents a time-limited investment by USAID to reduce the burden of malaria in sub-Saharan Africa by increasing the commercial supply of and public demand for insecticide treated nets. This is achieved primarily through partnerships with commercial companies and national malaria control programs, and national scale public education and promotional efforts.

NetMark and the 44 commercial partners it has worked with since 1999 have invested over 85% of their resources in the target countries and created sustainable commercial markets for nets and ITNs, making them available to all socio-economic groups. High risk groups such as pregnant women and children less than five years are receiving free or subsidized ITNs, and donors are better able to target their free distribution to the neediest.
