Fact Sheet | January 4, 2023
USAID’s End Malaria Project supports the National Malaria Control Program
(NMCP) in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) to achieve and sustain its goal of universal coverage of 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 will strengthen 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 in its first year, and conduct campaigns in other provinces through 2026. Moreover, the project aims to improve knowledge, change attitudes, and encourage proper usage of ITNs. The project also includes a gender focus to increase women’s participation in campaign activities and maximize ITN access, ownership, and use by both women and men.
