MOSASWA and Elimination 5
This regional project was another opportunity for ADPP to reaffirm its ability to lead an international consortium of civil society organizations. The project began in August 2016 and covered 3 countries – Mozambique, South Africa and Eswatini (MOSASWA) This was later extended to 3 other countries in May 2017 and was renamed to Elimination 5 (Botswana, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe with Mozambique).
In 2018, ADPP scaled down the management of this project in 6 countries and used 2019 to support the 5 countries to hand over this intervention to their Ministries of Health and national health services.
The project created malaria control posts and carried out diagnosis, treatment and community outreaches in the border areas, with the aim of supporting efforts to eliminate malaria in southern Africa by 2030. This included tracking malaria across the borders.
During the year the project in Mozambique continued with conducting diagnosis, treatment and community outreach with the following results.
Key Results 2019: The project tested 102,000 people and treated 8,100 patients according to Ministry of Health guidelines.
