Reducing malaria transmission and malaria-related deaths requires comprehensive, integrated programming. URC engages in a wide range of malaria prevention and control activities.

In communities, we work with all levels of government and civil society organizations to promote, distribute, and hang up long-lasting, insecticide-treated bed nets (LLIN) and carry out multi-faceted social mobilization to promote sustained use of malaria interventions.

At the facility level, we ensure that providers have the skills, medicines, and equipment for intermittent preventive treatment during pregnancy, improved diagnosis through the use of rapid diagnostic tests and quality microscopy, and strengthened case management using artemisinin combination therapy. Supportive supervision of health care providers at the health facility and community levels reinforces these skills. At the national level, we improve the quality and use of malaria data and enhance procurement and logistics to ensure a reliable supply of high-quality drugs and diagnostics.

Our activities are based on rigorous operational research to identify the best models for reducing malaria transmission in the local context and entomological research to guide policy and programming decisions to reduce insecticide resistance and improve vector control.
