Malaria is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in Uganda, contributing 30–50 percent of outpatient department attendance and over 20 percent of inpatient hospital admissions. In the last quarter of 2016, the MAPD project instituted several interventions to prevent and control malaria in nine high-burden districts in Uganda. These included: distributing long lasting insecticidal nets through schools and health facilities; improving data reporting and use; and training and mentoring health workers in malaria diagnostics and case management.
