Malaria Treatment Packaging With Visual Treatment Regimen

Breakthrough ACTION Guyana used a human-centered design process to reimagine malaria treatment packaging for gold miners living and working in the country’s hinterland regions. This intervention is currently being implemented in Guyana.

Breakthrough ACTION Guyana convened multiple stakeholders and designed and tested various prototypes for redesigned treatment packaging. The emergent prototype is a weather-proof envelope containing the malaria treatment tablets which malaria testers provide to miners who test positive for malaria. The envelope features images showing the malaria treatment regimen for P. Vivax, P. Falciparum, and a mixed infection, which are the most common types of malaria in Guyana. The images depict malaria parasites in the body gradually depleting as the regimen in completed.

Nepal CRS FP Products

The Nepal Contraceptive Retail Sales (CRS) Project was established in July 1976. Its status was formally acknowledged by the Ministry of Finance in 1978. Financial support was provided by USAID through Westinghouse Electric Inc, USA. The social marketing of Dhaal, Nepal’s first male contraceptive, was inaugurated in 1978.

From 1984 onwards, the CRS/MCH project was represented by a bold logo – a boy and a girl nurtured within the protective hands of their parents. Today, CRS is managed by local Nepalese staff and governed by an independent Board of Directors. It is the only social marketing company working as a not-for-profit organization in Nepal.

CRS Company developed various Family Planning, HIV/AIDS and STI Prevention, Child Health, Maternal Health and other health related materials.
