While all 22 million residents of Cameroon are at-risk for malaria, children and pregnant women are particularly vulnerable. The most recent nationwide household survey found that more than one-third of all children under the age of five are infected with malaria parasites. The malaria burden is heaviest in the Far North and North regions, which have a disproportionately higher number of malaria cases and deaths as compared with other regions. The goal of Cameroon’s strategic plan for malaria (2014–2018) is to contribute to improving the health of Cameroonians by reducing the health and socioeconomic burden of malaria. In addition to prioritizing the most vulnerable, interventions will be targeted to zones with high population density, high endemicity, and intense seasonal transmission.

Each Malaria Operational Plan has been endorsed by the U.S. Global Malaria Coordinator and reflects collaborative discussions with the national malaria control programs and partners in country. Changes to these plans are reflected in revised postings.
