Mozambique Integrated Malaria Program

Project Dates: November 2017 - October 2022

Malaria is the leading cause of death in Mozambique, accounting for 42 percent of deaths among children less than five-years old. USAID’s Integrated Malaria Program (IMaP), funded by the U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative, supports Mozambique’s National Malaria Control Program to reduce malaria mortality. Working alongside the Ministry of Health, IMaP is improving how the national health system is managed at the national, provincial, and district levels and enhancing malaria interventions in four high-malaria-burden provinces: Cabo Delgado, Nampula, Tete, and Zambezia. Through IMaP, Mozambique is strengthening malaria service delivery in health facilities and at the community level.

Project Goals

  • Support implementation of evidence-based malaria interventions
  • Strengthen the Ministry of Health’s management capacity
  • Improve data reporting, analysis, and use
