Background

The Liberia National Malaria Control Program (NMCP), Catholic Relief Services (CRS), Plan International Liberia, and other partners, with support from the Global Fund (GF) and the United States President’s Malaria Initiative (US-PMI), will implement a national insecticide-treated net (ITN) mass campaign in 2024 targeting 5.2 million people with 3,093,479 Interceptor G2 (IG2) Dual active ingredient (dual AI) nets across 15 counties. 

The 2024 overall goal for the mass ITN distribution campaign is to reduce malaria morbidity and mortality through achieving universal coverage with ITNs to prevent malaria in the general population.  The hope is that at least 95% of households are registered and issued vouchers to redeem their ITNs; 95% of registered households redeem the correct number of ITNs in both rural and urban areas; 85% of the households that receive ITNs are hanging and using them and 95% of households in all communities (urban & rural) are aware of the campaign strategies with key details about distribution points and dates of campaign activities.
