Country in Focus - Kenya

Kenya has made significant progress in the fight against malaria. Recent household surveys show improvements in coverage of malaria prevention and treatment measures and reductions in malaria parasitemia and illness. Large-scale implementation of ITNs, ACTs, and IPTp began in FY 2008 and has progressed rapidly with support from PMI and other partners. Other recent PMI-supported activities include promotion of malaria messages through behavior change communication channels, development and rollout of the national surveillance plan, and capacity building activities.
