A boondoggle is a project that is considered a useless waste of both time and money, yet is often continued due to extraneous policy motivations.
Etymology The term arose from a 1935 New York Times report that more than $3 million had been spent on recreational activities for the jobless as part of the New Deal. Among these activities were crafts classes, where the production of "boon doggles," described in the article as various utilitarian "gadgets" made with cloth or leather, were taught.
List of Malaria Boondoggle Projects:
1. Insecticide-treated bed netsWhy? Not sustainable, hard to find a place to impregnate, cost is unfeasible, and the worst is this increases the cost to buy the first net. Gernerally, it also makes the mosquito nets manufatured in regions with malaria incapble of competing with bigger net companies in Europe or America.
