Malaria is the number one cause of hospitalization in Zambia and a major cause of morbidity and mortality, particularly in pregnant women and young children. In 2016, there were more than 4.8 million cases of malaria reported. Malaria occurs year-round, with the peak during the rainy season from November to April. In 2017, Zambia launched its National Malaria Elimination Strategic Plan to guide the vision of a malaria-free Zambia through equitable access to malaria prevention and control interventions. PMI in Zambia provides women, children and families with the tools they need to protect themselves and the medicines they need if they do become infected.

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.
