Vector control

CAP-Malaria supports community-based approaches to improve access to and use of malaria prevention methods such as long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLIN), insecticide-treated hammocks (ITHs) and nets (ITNs), re-treatment kits, and other protection methods, particularly among highly vulnerable populations. For example, the project is scaling up the LLIN lending scheme for migrant workers developed by the Malaria Control in Cambodia project. The project coordinates closely with the Global Fund and other partners to ensure that resources for ITNs are available in the target geographic area. Bednet distribution is accompanied by behavior change communication (BCC) to encourage effective use. With the concerns over the contribution of substandard or counterfeit drugs, the project also focuses on the need of malaria patients to obtain malaria drugs from a trusted source and to complete treatment as prescribed. BCC strategies are designed taking into consideration the differences in social and occupational activities of women and men in the areas of high malaria endemicity, including the likelihood of men working in and around forested areas and the higher susceptibility of pregnant women to contracting malaria.
