SuNMap -- Support to National Malaria Programme -- was set up to support the Nigerian government tackle the burden of malaria, a disease that costs the country at least $1bn a year and causes thousands of deaths annually. Whilst malaria is both preventable and treatable, the public health system in Nigeria is overstretched. SuNMaP, funded by the UK Government (UKaid) and managed by Malaria Consortium, aims to provide much-needed support in efforts to reduce the burden of malaria in Nigeria.
Harmonisation is a key component of the SuNMap framework. This means increased partnerships and coordination between implementing partners, as well as cooperation between important actors at a local, national and international level. Activities aim to bring together all interventions, including different priorities and ways of working, avoiding duplication of efforts and achieving maximum benefit.
