New Nets Project

Related program: Malaria

The New Nets Project managed the rapid scale-up and widespread deployment of dual-active ingredient (AI) insecticide-treated nets (ITNs) to partner countries, making this novel technology designed to overcome insecticide resistance widely available to national malaria control programs (NMCPs) across Africa.

Project duration: 2018-2023

Project funders: Unitaid and The Global Fund

Prime: IVCC

The PATH-led components of the New Nets Project were active in Burkina Faso, Mozambique, Nigeria, and Rwanda

Project results

PATH partnered with local researchers and NMCPs to help lead and coordinate pilot studies evaluating the improved efficacy and incremental cost-effectiveness of these next-generation ITNs in real-world settings.

Results from the pilot studies were included in the package of evidence used to develop the new WHO policy recommendations for use of new ITN types in areas of documented insecticide resistance, and are helping guide NMCP strategies and sub-national tailoring approaches.
