Pioneer Project Description

The Pioneer project aims to reduce both the number of cases of malaria and deaths caused by the disease through support to the Ministry of Health – and the National Malaria Control Programme – at national, district and community levels. Pioneer is being implemented by Malaria Consortium Uganda and funded by Comic Relief UK for four years from 2009 to 2013.

Pioneer operates in five districts in mid-western Uganda: Kiboga, Kyankwanzi, Hoima, Buliisa, and Kibaale. Find out more about where we work, here.

Through the Pioneer project, 1.2 million people will be protected by malaria prevention measures and have access to life saving information and diagnostic-based treatment.

The project works to support systemic malaria control by increasing both supply and demand for malaria control tools in the region. By simultaneously ensuring the best available tools are accessible to the people who need them the most and increasing their understanding of the importance and effectiveness of these tools, Pioneer empowers families to take positive action for the health of their own households.

Pioneer is working to achieve two major outcomes:
