PNG-NMCP 2015-2017 - Evaluation of the Papua New Guinea National Malaria Control Program, 2015-2017

The Papua New Guinea National Department of Health (NDOH) is receiving financial support from the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria for the implementation of its malaria control program for the period 2015-2017. A range of partners are involved in the implementation of malaria control interventions (long-lasting insecticidal nets, raid diagnostic tests, artemisinin-based combination therapy and behaviour change campaigns), including: the NDOH, Rotarians Against Malaria (RAM) and Population Services International (PSI). The Papua New Guinea Institute of Medical Research (PNGIMR) has provided outcome and impact evaluation for the National Malaria Control Program (NMCP) since 2008 and has once again been contracted to evaluate aspects of the 2015-2017 program.  The evaluation plan includes several complementary activities based on studies initiated under previous Global Fund grants, including national surveys of health facilities and households as well as insecticide resistance monitoring providing key outcome and impact indicator data. Swiss TPH provides technical and scientific support to the evaluation studies implemented by PNGIMR. Results from the evaluation are expected to provide the NDOH with independently gathered evidence of the performance and impact of the NMCP, which is one of the prerequisites for continued funding from GFATM.
