Overview

A review of published and grey literature was undertaken together with visits to three countries, namely Ghana, Kenya and Zambia, in order to gather information on country experiences relating to the integrated delivery of insecticide-treated nets (ITNs) and immunization. This document synthesises the findings of the review in the form of a conceptual framework of strategic options for the integrated delivery of ITNs and immunization; the specific findings of the review are presented elsewhere.

The major issues raised by countries with experience of such integrated delivery are presented together with potential solutions based on the available evidence. The document aims to provide a resource to national programme managers and other partners supporting the national scale-up of ITNs through integrated programming with immunization.
