Malaria remains a major public health challenge globally, and in Uganda specifically. The USAID MAPD program was implemented from 2016 to 2021 to reduce malaria-related morbidity and mortality in the country. All 53 project districts signed a memorandum of understanding to commit to supporting the implementation of effective malaria interventions in line with the national malaria strategy, and to build the capacity of the NMCP and districts to effectively manage malaria programs. Key activities included the development of annual district malaria plans; routine distribution of long lasting insecticidal nets and intermittent preventive treatment in pregnancy; technical assistance for malaria case management with regular health facility supportive supervision; surveillance, monitoring and evaluation, including performance reviews; social behavior change; and gender and youth interventions.
