During MAPD's third year, the project overcame a number of additional challenges including prolonged upsurges of malaria in some districts, putting strain on malaria commodities - especially mRDTs and ACTs.
MAPD addressed this challenge by supporting redistribution of commodities from other regions and within the region, arranged upsurge response meetings and provided assistance to the NMCD and Districts to implement upsurge response activities such as; set up and management of District malaria taskforce meetings, health worker malaria case management mentorship, data verification, stock analysis, clinical and mortality audits, line listing to identify high malaria burden areas, and community interventions including IPC, home visits and outreaches.
