In 1998 in Zambia, a woman health worker, trained as part of a UNICEF-assisted malaria eradication project, shows a new bednet to the community's malaria committee in a village outside the northern town of Mansa. The inexpensive, locally available bednets will be sold by members of the committee, who will also show villagers how to impregnate them with insecticide.
