12 million bednets and innovative thinking make Ghana malaria partnership a success
Date:6/3/2013

er implementing partners, contributed immensely to the great improvements in malaria indicators as seen in the recently conducted Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS). I would recommend subsequent programs strive to emulate this concept in order to continue to achieve the impact and benefits for communities in Ghana, in both the immediate and long-term."

Malaria is one of the country's major causes of sickness and death, especially among young children. According to the GHS, malaria accounted for almost 40% of outpatient illness and over one-third of all health facility admissions in 2010. The WHO estimates total malaria-attributable child deaths at 14,000 per year in Ghana. The Ghanaian Ministry of Health aims to reduce the malaria disease burden by 75% by 2015.

In addition to hanging one net for every sleeping place, the ProMPT project worked with the GHS to strengthen the capacity of Ghana's health facilities to ensure that malaria is effectively managed, especially during pregnancy, when women are particularly vulnerable to malaria. The project led an initiative to train and provide training materials for more than 10,000 of Ghana's health workers in malaria case management and malaria in pregnancy. To date, over 21,000 health workers in over 2,000 health facilities have received a supervisory visit to help them correctly manage malaria.

The project also achieved numerous other successes, which will be documented in the forthcoming report. While the project officially closed in March, the NMCP, GHS, US Government, and NGOs such as Malaria Consortium will continue to work towards reducing the burden of malaria in Ghana.
