report MENTOR Initiative

By John Haskew, Country Representative

This was my first visit to two refugee camps in the east of Sierra Leone where a new malaria control tool, Insecticide treated plastic sheeting (ITPS) is currently being field tested by Johns Hopkins MENTOR Initiative, funded by UNHCR, EC ECHO and the US State Department for Population, Refugees and Migration. ITPS is the same as standard sheeting used by UNHCR in refugee camps but has a long lasting vector control technology applied to it.
