Malaria is endemic and a risk to all of Cameroon’s 28 million people. The U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI), through implementing partners, has enhanced their commitment by deploying a comprehensive package of interventions, including insecticide-treated nets; seasonal malaria chemoprevention (SMC); intermittent preventive treatment of malaria in pregnancy; indoor residual spraying; and malaria surveillance, monitoring, and evaluation (SME).
Specifically, PMI funded PMI Measure Malaria (PMM) to help the Cameroon National Malaria Control Program (NMCP) to improve data collection, analysis, and use at all levels of the health system and to strengthen its capacity to assess the country’s malaria interventions and communicate those findings to all malaria stakeholders. Activities included supporting the technical working group focused on SME, conducting data quality assessments and supportive supervision to improve malaria data and its use, and producing regional quarterly malaria bulletins for sharing information and planning activities.
