VectorWorks is implementing durability monitoring for ITNs in Mozambique according to the updated technical guidance from the U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative. VectorWorks, along with Tropical Health and the Instituto Nacional de Saúde, is conducting durability monitoring in Inhambane, Nampula, and Tete in order to maximize variation in environment and net use practices. Durability monitoring occurs at baseline (within the first 6 months), 1 year, 2 years, and 3 years post-ITN distribution. VectorWorks has completed the 24-month durability monitoring and is on schedule to begin data collection for the 36-month durability monitoring. VectorWorks is providing technical support for the planning and implementation of Mozambique’s school-based ITN distribution pilot, as well as assisting the NMCP and PMI in coordinating implementing partners.
