  1. The New Nets Project was established with the goal of making the latest resistance breaking net technology more widely available to malaria programs throughout Africa. As well as managing the rapid deployment of new nets to partner countries and negotiating a volume guarantee to reduce prices, the New Nets Project partners oversee randomized control trials and pilots. The evidence gathered from these will be used to ascertain the impact and cost-effectiveness of the nets and support an appropriate policy recommendation from the World Health Organization (WHO). The New Nets Project is co-funded by Unitaid and The Global Fund, with complementary funding provided by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and USAID. The project is led by IVCC. This report shares interim findings from the five observational studies led by PATH.

  2. This report focuses on bed net indicators collected from annual cross-sectional surveys and anthropological activities. Within each evaluation, available indicators on bed net ownership, bed net characteristics, and bed net use are presented. Due to country-specific factors, the timing of data collection, management, and analysis varies. Data collection and analysis are ongoing, and definitive conclusions will not be drawn from these results at this time.The New Nets Project (NNP) was established with the goal of making the latest dual active ingredient (AI) insecticide-treated nets (ITNs) more widely available to malaria programs throughout sub-Saharan Africa. In addition to managing the rapid deployment of new nets to partner countries and negotiating a volume guarantee to reduce prices, NNP partners oversee randomized control trials and pilot studies evaluating their efficacy and effectiveness. The evidence gathered from these studies will be used to ascertain the impact and cost-effectiveness of dual AI nets and support an appropriate ITN policy recommendation from the World Health Organization. The NNP is co-funded by Unitaid and The Global Fund, with complementary funding provided by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and US President’s Malaria Initiative. The project is led by IVCC.

  3. The goal of the antenatal care (ANC)-based malaria surveillance study is to assess the potential for pregnant women attending their first ANC visit to be used as an easy-to-access sentinel population at health facilities to monitor trends in prevalence of malaria infection and the coverage of malaria control interventions in study districts, correlated with similar metrics obtained during annual community-based cross-sectional surveys (CSS). The New Nets Project (NNP) is conducting annual cross-sectional surveys in three study districts each in Burkina Faso and western Mozambique and in four study local government areas in Nigeria, with the primary aim of evaluating the impact of next-generation dual active ingredient insecticide-treated nets (ITNs) compared to standard pyrethroid-only ITNs. Through funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and The Global Fund, testing for malaria of all pregnant women at during their first ANC visit is being implemented at select health facilities in NNP study districts for two years (2020–2022).This descriptive report presents a summary of preliminary results generated from the first months of data collection in Burkina Faso, Mozambique, and Nigeria. It begins with an overview of the study sites and timeline, followed by a summary of the study population and data collection and analysis methods. The findings from each country are then presented, including prevalence and ITN and care-seeking indicators. Each country section closes with a discussion on the ANC-based surveillance results and how they seemingly compare to results from the annual household CSSs from the NNP.

  5. Working across 24 countries in sub-Saharan Africa as well as Cambodia and Colombia, the PMI VectorLink Project is working with national malaria programs to plan and implement safe, cost-effective, and sustainable IRS, ITN, and other life-saving malaria vector control interventions with the overall goal of reducing the burden of malaria.PMI VectorLink works with national malaria programs to compile, analyze, and visualize relevant existing data to guide vector control decisions and strategies. National program and partner datasets are integrated for review and analysis, including entomological, epidemiological, intervention coverage, and climatological data. PMI VectorLink addresses barriers to using existing data through dashboards that make relevant data more easily accessible, digestible, timely, and action-oriented.In Nigeria, through a PATH-led integrated data analytics and visualization activity, PMI VectorLink is using data to mitigate the impact of insecticide resistance. This case study explores the opportunity and challenge of using new nets formulated to combat insecticide resistance, and how data is assisting decision-making.The PMI VectorLink project is being led by Abt Associates in partnership with Population Services International and PATH along with the support of Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, Malaria Consortium, Innovative Vector Control Consortium, McKinsey & Company, Inc., EnCompass LLC, BAO Systems LLC, Digital Globe, and Dimagi, Inc.

  6. During the COVID-19 pandemic, governments around the world have rapidly introduced policies to mitigate service disruptions to RMNCAH,N care using innovative adaptations such as telehealth or task shifting. As part of our ongoing COVID-19 Essential Health Services Policy Tracker project supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, PATH developed a set of briefs that explore in detail the service delivery adaptations outlined in pandemic-era government policies in five countries (Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, India, Nigeria, and Pakistan) to equip country leaders, donors, and advocates with tactics for maintaining essential health services through the pandemic and beyond.(French translation available for brief on Burkina Faso)

  8. The New Nets Project, a partnership funded by Unitaid and the Global Fund and led by IVCC, aims to accelerate the scale-up of next-generation, dual-active ingredient ITNs and to provide National Malaria Control Programs, donors, and implementers with clear evidence of their impact on malaria burden.
