Malaria in Benin
Malaria is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality among children under five in Benin. Malaria is reported to account for 40 percent of outpatient consultations and 25 percent of all hospital admissions. With 39 percent of the population living below the poverty line, malaria places an enormous economic strain on Benin’s development. According to the World Bank, households in Benin spend approximately one-quarter of their annual income on the prevention and treatment of malaria.

The Malaria Operational Plans (MOPs) below are detailed one-year implementation plans for PMI in Benin. 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.
