Group | Malaria Interventions

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.

Towards Elimination of Malaria in Tanzania

Tanzania made massive progress in malaria control through innovative approaches over the past decade. To sustain and expand these results, the TEMT project aims to support cost-effective and evidence-based malaria control efforts at national and decentralized level, enhance multi-sectoral action in malaria control and develop a comprehensive knowledge management strategy for malaria control in Tanzania.

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. The project is in its 3rd phase. Read more about the project

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
