This multi-partner research programme is a collaboration between Africa University, Ministry of Health & Child Care, USAID Zimbabwe Assisted Programme in Malaria (ZAPIM), PMI and CDC Atlanta, with the goal of establishing malaria and vector molecular surveillance capability at Africa University. The Maternal & Child Survival Program was a multi-partner, flagship program in support of USAID’s priority goal of preventing child and maternal deaths. Our work was evidence-based and results oriented. We focussed on increasing coverage and utilization of high-quality reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health interventions at the.

developed a U.S. Government Malaria Strategy for – This strategy included a long-term vision for malaria control in which sustained high coverage with malaria prevention and treatment interventions would progressively lead to malaria-free zones in Africa, with the ultimate goal of worldwide malaria eradication by Niger. Malaria remains a major public health issue in Niger and is endemic throughout the country. Malaria accounts for 28 percent of all illnesses and 50 percent of all recorded deaths.
