PMI February 2018 E-Newsletter

Announcements

On February 13, Malaria No More honored USAID Administrator Mark Green and Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) at its annual Champions Breakfast which celebrates leaders in government, public policy, and the private sector who are working to ensure that no child dies from a mosquito bite. Upon accepting the award Administrator Green stated, “Malaria isn’t just a global health issue, it robs countries of their vitality, of their strength. We must look to the day we end malaria.”
On January 28, the African Leaders Malaria Alliance (ALMA) honored six African countries, including PMI focus countries Madagascar, Senegal, and Zimbabwe for their leadership in driving continued reductions in malaria cases and deaths. In 2016, these countries saw a reduction in cases of 36 percent, 30 percent, and 29 percent respectively.
Although substantial progress in scaling up malaria control interventions continues, the World Malaria Report 2017 reports that progress in reducing malaria cases and deaths has slowed, and in some countries, reversed, serving as a sobering reminder that there is much work left to do. Since 2005, the U.S. has been a driving force and indispensable partner in the effort against malaria. With the FY 2017 addition of five new PMI focus countries in West and Central Africa, which will benefit an additional 90 million people, PMI and the U.S. Government reinforces its effort to end malaria for good.
The planned dates for PMI FY 2019 Malaria Operational Plan (MOP) visits have been scheduled, most of which will take place between March and June. Please note that dates are subject to change. The FY 2018 MOPs can be viewed online.
PMI continues to provide global leadership in malaria vector control through the award of the PMI VectorLink Project, which builds upon PMI's important investments in the implementation of indoor residual spraying and malaria prevention activities over the past twelve years. Through this new project, PMI, in partnership with ministries of health and national malaria control programs, will provide technical, managerial, and commodity support for IRS, entomological monitoring, and integrated malaria vector control services. The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) through the PMI awarded the five-year, $472 million Vector Control IDIQ [PDF, 1.3MB] to Abt Associates.

In the News

An external analysis from experts in the global malaria community estimates that since its inception in 2005, PMI has prevented an estimated 185 million cases and saved 940,049 lives.
On Friday, November 17, Sierra Leone President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma, and U.S. Ambassador to Sierra Leone, Maria E. Brewer, formally launched the U.S. President's Malaria Initiative in Sierra Leone.

Country Activities

Since the opening of the Mahama Refugee Camp by the Government of Rwanda and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in 2015, Mahama Refugee Camp has become a model settlement that sets the standard for other refugee camps in the country and beyond. 
PMI’s support for IRS implementation provides critically important income-opportunities for women. Read the story of Tsitsi Kupangwa, one of 40 women hired by the PMI AIRS Project in Zimbabwe in 2015. Since initially being hired as a washer, she has been promoted twice and now serves as a team leader, supervising four IRS spray operators. Tsitsi said that she will continue to work for the program because of the importance of protecting communities from malaria and because of the extra income she earns for her family.
In Madagascar, the U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative supports over 6,800 community health volunteers (CHVs), and works towards helping eliminate malaria through awareness raising, prevention, treatment, and epidemiologic surveillance. CHVs are on the frontlines of this effort, saving the lives of thousands of people in villages across Madagascar.
The U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative has conducted indoor residual spraying (IRS) in Benin since 2008, resulting in ten-fold reduction in the entomological inoculation rate, which is a measure of malaria transmission, in turn contributing to the reduction of the overall malaria incidence in those areas sprayed.
