Distribution of 676,000 nets underway in Kasaï Occidental Province, DRC

This distribution will achieve universal coverage in seven Health Zones in the Kasaï Occidental Province of Congo (Dem. Rep.), across a population of some 1.2 million people.

The distribution is being carried out by IMA World Health, with the UK Government’s Department of International Development (DFID) as a co-funding partner.

This will the first stage of a two stage net distribution approach that has the specific objective of maintaining sleeping space coverage at or above 80% for a period of four years.

The second stage will involve continuous monitoring of net use and condition, and also net gaps, with additional net distribution as appropriate via 'routine distribution' mechanisms.

In addition, 6,000 nets will cover all hospital and maternity beds across all health facilities in the seven Health Zones.
