SuNMaP worked with the Nigerian government's National Malaria Elimination Programme (NMEP) to harmonise donor efforts and funding agencies around agreed national policies and plans for malaria control and elimination.
SuNMaP has improved national, state and local government level capacity for policy development, planning and coordination, in addition to working with those agencies to improve population coverage of effective measures for the prevention of malaria and access of the population to effective treatment for malaria.
The programme’s work was set within the context of current NMEP objectives and targets. The main goal of the NMEP is to reduce the malaria burden to pre-elimination levels and bring malaria-related mortality to zero. The programme worked with the NMEP towards the achievement of its vision of a malaria-free Nigeria and in tandem with its mission to ’provide equitable, comprehensive, cost effective, efficient and quality malaria control services ensuring transparency, accountability, client satisfaction, community ownership and partnership.’
The major national targets as outlined in the National Malaria Strategic Plan (NMSP) 2014-2020 are as follows:
