This project is implemented in Nampula and Niassa provinces in close collaboration with the National Programme for the Combat of Malaria (PNCM) managed by the Ministry of Health of Mozambique as part of the country’s efforts to fight Malaria. One of the most demanding activities will be providing logistical support to local health services during the distribution of insecticide-treated mosquito nets, which will take place in 2019 and 2020.
The project will also train schoolteachers, community activists and volunteers as Malaria advocates. These trained individuals will work in their communities to deliver Malaria prevention messages, mobilize anti-Malaria campaigns and conduct home visits to children, pregnant women and the general population.
In 2018 the project covered events on World Malaria Day, conducted periodic multimedia campaigns, community radio spots, supported and facilitated cultural actions and extracurricular school programmes, such as Malaria testing and knowledge competitions.
