USAID's End Malaria

Project Dates: 3/1/2021 - 2/28/2026

The USAID-funded End Malaria Project supports the National Malaria Control Program (NMCP) to achieve and sustain its goal of universal coverage of insecticide-treated nets (ITNs) through mass and school-based distribution campaigns in targeted provinces as determined by the NMCP and the U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI). The project strengthens the NMCP to effectively plan and implement proven approaches for mass campaigns in Lualaba, Kwango, and Kasai Central provinces and school campaigns in Equateur and Lomami.

 

Project Goals


  1. Increase population access to insecticide-treated nets (ITNs) through mass distribution campaigns by covering 90% of households in targeted provinces.
  2. Contribute to maintaining household ITN coverage through implementation of school-based distributions by reaching 95% of eligible school children in targeted provinces.
  3. Strengthen the capacity of the National Malaria Control Program to plan and implement ITN distribution activities in line with international best practices.
