PMI Invests $36 Million to Strengthen Countries’ Malaria Information Systems

Jul 1, 2019 | MEASURE Evaluation

The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), through the U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI), has awarded $36 million in new funding to strengthen malaria information systems and build capacity in malaria surveillance, monitoring, and evaluation (SM&E) in PMI partner countries.

The five-year malaria SM&E award—made to supplement the USAID-funded MEASURE Evaluation global health project—will help countries develop systems to ensure high-quality malaria-related data are available and used to improve health programs and policies.

This investment will:

  • Help provide more accurate and timely data to inform malaria prevention and elimination efforts
  • Enhance country-level use of strategic information to improve case detection, quality of care, and placement of resources
  • Develop global guidance for malaria SM&E
  • Support a coordinated response by malaria-endemic countries

MEASURE Evaluation is housed at the Carolina Population Center of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Read the full press release.
