Malaria is endemic in more than 95 percent of Malawi and is one of the major causes of morbidity and mortality across all age groups. Among children under five years of age, malaria parasite prevalence by microscopy was 33 percent nationally. With support from PMI and other partners, the Malawian Ministry of Health’s National Malaria Control Program has been able to scale up the distribution of artemisinin-based combination therapies, intermittent preventive treatment for pregnant women and insecticide-treated nets. Progress to date is promising; between 2006 and 2015, the mortality rate for children under five years of age declined to an estimated 64 deaths per 1,000 live births.

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.
