This report summarises eight years of the Support to National Malaria Programme (SuNMaP), an £89 million UK aid funded project that works with the government and people of Nigeria to strengthen the national effort to control malaria.
SuNMaP, which run from 2008 to 2016, was led by Malaria Consortium, with partners GRID Consulting and Health Partners International. The programme, aimed to reach the Nigerian population, especially the poorest and most vulnerable, with evidence based interventions that would help control the disease and reduce the malaria burden.
This report on the succeses and learning from SuNMaP demontrates that it is possible to use one disease control programme as an entry point to strengthen the health system without losing momentum towards achieving the direct objectives of that health programme.
