External Evaluation of the President’s Malaria Initiative

by on February 27, 2012

On February 21, 2012, USAID released the final report by an external evaluation team of the first five years (FY 2006-FY 2010) of the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI). PMI is a major component of the U.S. Government’s Global Health Initiative (GHI), announced by President Barack Obama in May 2009. PMI, led by USAID and implemented together with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, was launched in June 2005 by President George W. Bush to reduce the intolerable burden of malaria and help relieve poverty on the African continent.

Last year, PMI commissioned an external Evaluation Team to review its performance. PMI leadership agrees with the overall findings and believes that the 10 main recommendations are both relevant and useful for program improvement.
