Malaria Project

The National Malaria Strategic Plan 2017-2022 was developed with the overall goal of reducing malaria morbidity and mortality by 50% relative to 2015 and to increase the proportion of caregivers of children under five who take action to seek appropriate malaria treatment within 24 hours of the onset of fever from 31.2% in 2017 to 50% by 2022. As such, this study aims to inform these strategic plan intents by the NMCP through the expansion of malaria community case management (mCCM) from under-fives to all ages.

The overall project aims to assess the effectiveness of extending community case management of malaria to all age groups over 12 months in Neno, Ntchisi and Salima, Malawi. In addition, to analysing the effectiveness of extending malaria case management from under-fives to all ages, the project will assess the acceptability, feasibility, perceptions and experiences of extending mCCM to all ages, according to community members, HSAs, and health facilities in charge and estimate the implementation costs of extending mCCM to all ages from the provider perspective.
