In many instances, NetsforLife® works in places so remote and difficult to reach that no government services reach these people, who are literally "at the end of the road."  By working to instill a "net culture," NetsforLife® helps communities understand the value of nets, the right way to use them and how to maintain them.

Global Health TV takes a look at NetsforLife®, a unique partnership that brings together corporations, foundations, NGOs and faith-based organizations in the fight against malaria in 17 African countries.NetsforLife®'s strategy focuses on creating a "net culture" in communities at the end of the road by educating about the protective value and best use of bednets.

La Agencia Episcopal de Alivio y Desarrollo es una respuesta de la Iglesia Episcopal al sufrímiento humano en todo el mundo.

Episcopal Relief & Development is working with Episcopal/Anglican partners to better prepare for and respond to disasters, whether natural or human-made. At the core of this goal is our pilot Disaster Risk Reduction and Management initiative with the Anglican Diocese of Colombo and the Church's Auxiliary for Social Action (CASA) in Sri Lanka.

Episcopal Relief & Development partners with local churches and community organizations to offer micro-finance services, along with business and vocational training. By developing a skill such as tailoring or woodworking, participants can supply a needed service or product. The programs also provide loans, enabling entrepreneurs to purchase materials or inventory, along with business and marketing training that positions them to succeed.

In areas where Episcopal Relief & Development and its partners work, communities often lack access to sanitation systems. Since sanitation and hygiene practices are linked to preserving and promoting safe water, our approach addresses these issues holistically for a greater, more sustainable impact. We support communities in constructing hand-washing stations and latrines. 

In order to reduce illness and death among expectant and new mothers and their children, Episcopal Relief & Development supports local initiatives that train health workers and community volunteers to actively engage with families and monitor child health. We are saving lives by encouraging pregnant women to seek prenatal care, promoting nutrition for mother and child and ensuring that babies receive the recommended vaccinations.

Episcopal Relief & Development and its partners work with small-scale farmers to ensure that food is available, accessible and affordable. Along with Church partners and local organizations, we empower communities to improve food production by providing training, tools and resources. Using the value-chain model, our programs help farmers gain access to credit, learn about improved agricultural techniques and inputs, grow more food, and find creative ways to access local markets and increase their income. 

Episcopal Relief & Development is committed to ensuring that safe and clean water is accessible even in the most rural communities. In partnership with local organizations, we support communities in developing clean sources of water. 

Episcopal Relief & Development's NetsforLife® program partnership is working in 17 countries across sub-Saharan Africa to fight malaria with life-saving nets and education. Since the program began in 2006, close to 81,000 volunteer malaria control agents have received training in distributing nets to communities, educating families on their proper use and maintenance, and monitoring and evaluating net usage over time.
