RAM Working With Partners

Rotarians Against Malaria (RAM) was a major partner to the National Department of Health (NDoH) during implementation of the Global Fund Round 3 grant. During that programme, RAM procured and delivered long lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs) to every district in the country during the period of 2004 to 2008. Under Round 8, RAM is procuring and distributing LLINs to every household in PNG. RAM will also supply LLINs to pregnant women through antenatal consultations, and to institutions such as hospitals and orphanages as well as to People Living with HIV/AIDS. RAM is working in close coordination with provincial and district health staff as well as local partners who work directly with the local community. RAM expects to distribute more than 1 million nets in 2010, followed by another 1 million in 2011.
