PMI Impact Malaria's COVID-19 eLearning Modules

COVID-19 has impacted people around the globe in widespread and unparalleled ways. As of November 18, there were 55.9 million confirmed cases and almost 1.3 million confirmed deaths reported from 191 countries and regions (Johns Hopkins). The numbers are striking and the urgency to combat COVID-19 is acute.

While the global health community has achieved steady gains in reducing the incidence of malaria over the last decade, nearly half the world’s population remains at risk of malaria. The malaria death rate could nearly double if the pandemic causes ongoing commodity shortages and the disruption of essential malaria interventions, estimates the World Health Organization.

As part of PMI Impact Malaria's (IM) COVID-19 response, IM has developed a series of publicly available eLearning modules for healthcare providers. To access the modules, please see the download instructions at the bottom of the page.
