In-Country Management and Distribution of Long Lasting Insecticide-Treated Nets: A Logistics Guide for Implementers (Second Edition)

Catholic Relief services has created In-Country Management and Distribution of Long Lasting Insecticide-Treated Nets: A Logistics Guide for Implementers to share the insights and expertise gained from the experience of Long-Lasting Insecticide-treated Nets (LLINs) distribution campaigns and to offer advice to the community of practitioners, especially those familiar with U.S.-funded food assistance programs, in the efficient management and successful distribution of LLIN or other similar products. This guide offers simple methodical procedures and tools for supply chain management (SCM) from initial planning to final distribution and reporting. Organizations with experience managing Title II food assistance commodities will find this guide especially familiar and simple to follow, because the principles and tools for managing Title II commodities are similar to those required for managing LLIN distribution programs, particularly when the distribution is continuous.
