Our mission at Green World Health Network is to improve health and at the same time create a more sustainable planet. We believe that our future as a people and planet depends on identifying and strengthening the connections between health, quality of life, and the environment. We work towards this goal by implementing innovative projects which utilize green technologies and practices to improve health and quality of life in under-resourced communities in the US and throughout the world.

- Boko Pilot study findings will be submitted to Malaria Journal and several other malaria project-receptive journals. The submissions include both a quantitative and qualitative study which point to a positive correlation between the use of our Boko fan and increased bed net use and high acceptability rates (100% usage over a year).
- Green World Health Net staff, with our partners from the Swiss Tropical Public Health Institute and the Noguchi Memorial Institute of Medical Research, will conclude our year long Boko Project pilot study in Ghana. After the study data is collected and finalized it will be analyze and several papers will be submitted to academic journals. Preliminary findings are positive and indicate that the Boko System greatly increases the use of mosquito nets and saves lives.
