Ms. Joy Riggs-Perla, Director of the International Development Group, URC, gave this presentation on behalf of the USAID-funded Promoting Malaria Prevention and Treatment (ProMPT) Project at the "Mosquito Be Dead: Developments in Malaria Prevention" roundtable discussion hosted by URC, GWU's Center for Global Health, and the USAID Translating Research into Action Project in April 2013.

The ProMPT project ended in March 2013 with a conference in Accra, Ghana to celebrate the achievements of the country’s malaria program. Ms. Riggs-Perla shared lessons discussed at the conference related to LLIN hang-up campaigns, mass distribution of LLINs, and continuous distribution of LLINs through schools. She also addressed the importance of key contributors to program success: local leadership, social mobilization, and improvements in data quality and use.
