PMI: Presidents Malaria Initiative - Saving lives in Africa.

Rwanda

 

Malaria in Rwanda
Rwanda has made significant progress in scaling up malaria control interventions, and Ministry of Health statistics show declines in malaria morbidity and mortality. In 2011, Rwanda’s health management information system reported only 227,015 malaria cases (of which 95 percent were laboratory confirmed) compared with 772,197 cases in 2008. Similarly, malaria-attributed morbidity (fever cases with laboratory confirmation of malaria) decreased from 12 percent in 2008 to about 3 percent in 2011.

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