PMI: Presidents Malaria Initiative - Saving lives in Africa.



Malaria in Uganda
Malaria is Uganda’s leading cause of morbidity and mortality. According to the Ministry of Health, malaria accounts for 25 to 40 percent of outpatient visits to health facilities and is responsible for nearly half of inpatient pediatric deaths. In most parts of the country, temperature and rainfall allow stable, year-round malaria transmission at high levels with relatively little seasonal variability.

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