Malaria is endemic and transmission occurs year-round in all parts of Ghana. The entire population is at risk of malaria infection; however, transmission is markedly less intense in large urban centers compared to rural areas. Since becoming a PMI focus country in December 2007, Ghana has concentrated on improving control methods, increasing resources, and adopting revised international technical standards for malaria control. Significant reductions in malaria mortality have been observed and the case fatality rate among children under five has declined from 14 percent in 2000 to less than one percent in 2012.

Malaria Operational Plans

The Malaria Operational Plans below are detailed 1-year implementation plans for PMI focus countries. Each plan reviews the current status of malaria control and prevention policies and interventions, identifies challenges and unmet needs to achieve PMI goals, and provides a description of planned PMI-funded activities. 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.
