PMI: Presidents Malaria Initiative - Saving lives in Africa.

Angola

 

Malaria in Angola
Angola is rebuilding its health systems, which were severely damaged during the 27-year civil war that ended in 2002. Only about 40 percent of the population has access to government health facilities. Malaria accounts for an estimated 35 percent of mortality in children under the age of five, 25 percent of maternal mortality, and 60 percent of hospital admissions for children under five. Malaria transmission is highest in northern Angola, while the southern provinces have highly seasonal or epidemic malaria.

The Malaria Operational Plans (MOPs) below are detailed one-year implementation plans for PMI in Angola. Each MOP briefly reviews the current status of malaria control and prevention policies and interventions, identifies challenges and unmet needs, and describes planned activities under PMI. These MOPs have been endorsed by the Global Malaria Coordinator and reflect collaborative discussions with national malaria control programs and partners in country.
