The USAID-funded Promoting Malaria Prevention and Treatment (ProMPT) project, managed by URC, has partnered with a local NGOs in Ghana to ensure that community volunteers educate the public on malaria-in-pregnancy management and malaria prevention and treatment in general. This success story describes how the AMPA Resource Foundation, which works in Ghana’s Eastern Region, reached out to a traditional birth attendant in a local community called Minimade to educate her about the need for intermittent preventative treatment during pregnancy for her clients and increased the number of women registering for antenatal care at the local health clinic.
