Defeat Malaria Activity
The Defeat Malaria Activity will strategically reduce the malaria burden and control artemisinin-resistant malaria in the targeted areas, contributing to the long-term national goal of eliminating malaria in Burma. It builds on the achievements of the USAID PMI Control and Prevention of Malaria Project, also implemented by URC.
Defeat Malaria objectives are to:
- Achieve and maintain universal coverage of at-risk populations with proven vector control and case management interventions, while promoting the testing of new tools and approaches.
- Strengthen the malaria surveillance system to comprehensively monitor progress and inform the deployment and targeting of appropriate responses and strategies.
- Enhance technical and operational capacity of the National Malaria Control Program (NMCP) and other health service providers at all levels of service provision.
- Promote the involvement of communities, private healthcare providers, private companies and state-owned enterprises in malaria control and elimination initiatives.
