The Ministry of Health in Myanmar aims to eliminate malaria by 2030. The National Malaria Control Programme has introduced a body of trained community malaria volunteers to diagnose and treat malaria in all age groups and report cases to the township and central levels as part of integrated community case management (iCCM). We found that iCCM closes services gaps for malaria and common childhood illnesses and is widely accepted by the community and basic health staff.
This presentation was given at the ICTMM conference symposium, Bangkok, 25th October 2022.
