Delivering Nets Against Malaria, Tanzania 2013

The Malaria Interventions Group includes a number of large-scale service projects, as well as a substantial operations research portfolio. Our operational research is usually associated with these large projects on issues related to national-level implementation of malaria control activities mainly in Tanzania and DR Congo. Separate research programmes on quality of care, health financing, and the treatment of mild and severe episodes of malaria complete our portfolio.

The NETCELL Project

For the past 12 years, the NETCELL project (supported by SDC) has worked within the Tanzanian National Malaria Control Programme to strengthen the National Mosquito Net Programme (NATNETS) and improve case management. The overall goal of case management is to ensure universal access to appropriate, quality and timely diagnosis and treatment of malaria. Read more about the project

The GlobMal Project

The GlobMal  project (supported by SDC) aims to strengthen the Roll Back Malaria Partnership by organizing the Vector Control Working Group and the Case Management Working Group. GlobMal also aims to build capacity through a range of training courses for different malaria control personnel. Read more about the project

The Papua New Guinea Malaria Projects

Papua New Guinea (PNG) is a highly malaria endemic country in the South-West Pacific. Since 2004, the National Malaria Control Program (NMCP), a multi-stakeholder partnership of the PNG government, non-governmental organizations and the private sector, has been financed largely with grants from the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
