Malaria Consortium in Uganda
||Malaria Consortium Uganda is committed to reducing the burden of malaria and other communicable diseases – particularly those that affect young children such as pneumonia and diarrhoea. We work closely with a range of partners including the Ministry of Health, communities and civil society. Our areas of focus in Uganda include:
- Malaria prevention, diagnostics and case management;
- Community level interventions for child health – specifically integrated community case management of childhood illnesses;
- Health systems strengthening;
- Operational research, policy and advocacy.

Facts and figures
Uganda's climate and high rainfall allows stable, perennial, and high levels of malaria transmission in much of the country. In the highland areas of the south and mid-west, and along the Kenyan and Sudanese borders, transmission is low and unstable, with the potential for epidemics.
