Malaria Prevention Project
ADPP became a Global Fund Partner in the Mozambican civil society response to malaria in early 2018, implementing activities in 23 districts in Niassa and Nampula provinces in the period from 2018 to 2020. The project is implemented in collaboration with the National Malaria Program.
The aim of the project is to empower people to take control of their health through implementing malaria prevention actions in their homes and communities and seeking early treatment for infection in the health facilities closest to their homes, especially in the rural communities.
Health committee volunteers and teachers from the target communities are trained to work in the community and equipped with the tools to disseminate knowledge. They work voluntarily and carry out home visits to educate the public about methods for prevention, signs and symptoms of malaria, the effects and consequences of malaria infection and highlight the importance of seeking early treatment early treatment.
Key Results 2019: To prevent the spread of malaria, nearly 650,000 people were reached with awareness campaigns and a distribution of approximately 3,900,000 mosquito nets.
