Summary

The Alliance’s Mosquito Netting Initiative has been designed to ensure that every family of four (women and children) in 24 villages (1) own a mosquito net and (2) are instructed on its proper use.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Endemic to third-world populations, malaria not only negatively impacts quality of life, but also devastates already suppressed economies. The people of Mali, who consistently rank among the five poorest countries in the world, are among those who suffer from malaria. This year’s Mosquito Netting Initiative is designed to concentrate administrative health efforts to dispensing mosquito netting to every family in 24 villages in the Ouelessebougou region.

How will this project solve this problem?

The Alliance has a unique delivery mechanism because of the already established partnership we have with 24 villages. Upon delivery, a health agent is trained to teach the villagers how to properly use the mosquito nets.

Potential Long Term Impact

Mosquito nets have proven to be the most effective way to prevent malaria. The goal of the Alliance is to deliver nets for 3,746 families this year--preventing malaria for every family in 24 rural villages.
