As a five-year malaria service delivery project of the U.S President’s Malaria Initiative, PMI Impact Malaria (IM) provides global technical leadership through implementation support, technical assistance, and operational research in health facility and community settings across Africa and Asia.
For the second year of the project, IM continued activities to support the national malaria control programs (NMCPs) of 14 countries in their efforts to fight malaria and save lives through strengthening diagnosis, treatment, and drug-based prevention for those most at risk of malaria, particularly young children and pregnant women.
IM focused intensively on building a high caliber, collaborative team in countries and at headquarters, with the expertise and leadership needed to achieve impact. In supporting the work of NMCPs, IM has advanced malaria service delivery through a focus on quality improvement and country self-reliance as its backbone, setting the stage for sustainable, accelerated impact both nationally and globally during the project’s third year and beyond.
This is a snapshot of country-driven achievement highlights that IM supported during the past year:
