In conflict-affected remote communities of Cameroon, malaria prevention and treatment face significant challenges. With 30 percent of health facilities having closed due to instability, there is an increased reliance on community systems. The Breaking Barriers research project, funded by the 5% Initiative, sought to improve access to malaria prevention and control. Together with Reach Out, Kasafro and a variety of stakeholders, Malaria Consortium co-created a novel community engagement approach, the Community Health Participatory Approach (CoHPA), to bolster malaria prevention and health-seeking behaviour, emphasising community engagement and data-driven insights to optimise interventions.
