ARCHIVE stands for: Architecture for Health in Vulnerable Environments. We believe that health should not be negatively impacted by the state of housing. Operating in the spaces of development, health, and architecture, we prioritize housing design as a key strategy in combating disease around the world. Archive has focused on a number of interventions to combat different diseases however mosquito-proof housing has been a prominent focus of our work with projects in Cameroon, Namibia, Swaziland and soon Gabon. We are interested in joining the network to learn about the experiences of the members of this multi-disciplinary network, as well as share our work, and the lessons we have learned so that together we can seek out additional opportunities to successfully combat vector-borne diseases.
