Since 1999, NetMark has joined forces in eight African countries with more than 40 commercial partners-including four of the world’s largest suppliers of ITNs and over 30 African manufacturers, wholesalers, and distributors-to ensure that affordable ITNs are available to all socio-economic groups. ... NetMark is a true cross-sector partnership: in addition to the $30 million USAID has invested to date in NetMark, the private sector has contributed $16.8 million." [1]
