Investment in Malaria Case Management Saves Lives .

Technical Brief | October 12, 2023

Timely and accurate testing and correctly administered medication help to ensure a prompt return to health and strengthen trust in the health system.

In malaria-endemic countries, fever is by far the most common reason for visits to health facilities. In Mozambique, malaria remains the most important public health problem. In collaboration with Mozambique’s National Malaria Control Program and its other development and technical partners, Chemonics International led the USAID Integrated Malaria Program (IMaP). The program worked at the national, provincial, and district levels to strengthen training and supervisory structures for quality case management and preventive treatment among pregnant women to reduce malaria morbidity and mortality in four high malaria-burden provinces.
