SuNMaP 2 is a UK aid-funded follow-up to SuNMaP that will support government efforts to further reduce Nigeria’s malaria burden. The programme will be implemented by Malaria Consortium and will integrate malaria prevention, treatment, and other interventions at the community and service delivery levels, as well as in other settings, through public and private sector partnerships. It aims to improve the planning, financing and delivery of sustainable malaria programmes across 165 local government areas in six states of Nigeria: Jigawa, Kaduna, Kano, Katsina, Lagos, and Yobe.
USAID’s Malaria Action Program for Districts is focused on preventing and controlling malaria morbidity and mortality in Uganda through support to the government on a range of activities to minimise the social impact and economic losses on those affected. The five-year project is being implemented in 43 districts in the Central, Western and West Nile regions of Uganda. Between 2016 and 2021, the programme aims to reach an estimated 13 million people.
Malaria Consortium, in partnership with UNICEF, is supporting the Ministry of Health to implement a project funded by UK aid from the UK government in 25 districts in mid-northern Uganda, to support efforts to reduce malaria-related morbidity and mortality. The Strengthening Uganda’s Response to Malaria (SURMa) project will be implemented in eight districts in Acholi, nine in Lango, and eight in Karamoja.
Building upon a successful pilot, the project will strengthen support for malaria volunteers to maintain and further develop their skills, improve the ability of basic health staff to provide the necessary supervision, address shortage of stocks for rapid diagnostic tests and medicines, and increase malaria volunteers’ motivation to provide and communities’ demand for health services. Malaria Consortium is scaling up the approach from three to six townships of Sagaing region.
Building on Malaria Consortium’s previous work in Mozambique through the Bill & Melinda Gates funded inSCALE project (2009-2016), the upSCALE project will further develop the mHealth system and community health worker app (formerly known as inSCALE APE CommCare), that was previously introduced in selected districts in Inhambane province, to create a national community health worker mHealthsystem.
Acute Respiratory infection diagnostic aids (ARIDA) project
Diagnosing pneumonia is challenging at all levels of healthcare. Diagnosis requires counting respiratory rates and inaccurate counts can lead to incorrect diagnosis and inappropriate treatment. The ARIDA project aims to introduce automated respiratory rate counting aids for use by frontline health workers in resource limited community settings and health facilities that offer improved accuracy and effectiveness compared to current practice for classifying pneumonia
