World Malaria Day – PMI Report

by on April 25, 2012

Today, World Malaria Day, marks the release of the sixth annual President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) Report to Congress. In 11 PMI focus countries, all-cause mortality rates among children under five years of age have dropped between 16 and 50 percent. PMI recently released a comprehensive external evaluation of its first five years (FY 2006–FY 2010), showing that PMI has made substantial progress toward meeting its goal of reducing under-five child mortality in most of the 15 focus countries.

MEASURE Evaluation’s work in malaria includes developing indicators, data collection tools, and guidance on M&E of malaria control programs. It also has an extensive portfolio of methodological research, training programs, and capacity building activities to develop a cadre of global M&E professionals. In October 2011, MEASURE Evaluation helped support the first Kenya National Malaria Forum.
