Project Launch:

Malaria is a leading cause of death of children under 5 in Togo. Despite repeated national programs to distribute bed nets, malaria remains an enormous problem. Recent investigative statistics have shown that of the Togolese households that received bed nets to protect sleeping family members from the biting mosquito that spreads the illness, less than one third reported having slept under a bed net the night before. Lack of behavior change is a cited barrier to rooting out malaria in Togo and this project hopes to better understand why those at risk have not effectively changed their behavior in order to prevent further exposure to malarial infection.

Amount Requested:

$721.23
