During 2018, Ethiopia experienced some of the highest internal displacement in the world. As a result of violent conflict, over 810,000 people from the Guji zone of Oromia region and the Gedeo zone of the Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples’ Region (SNNPR) were displaced into 45 sites for internally displaced people (IDPs) in the SNNPR. Responding to the emergence of IDP sites in the areas in which we were working, Malaria Consortium designed a targeted intervention to support prevention and control efforts across 10 IDP sites. This brief highlights key learning and outlines recommendations around the inclusion of IDPs in national malaria strategic planning activities.
