The Uganda Malaria Elimination Program  is a Rotary International Global Grant backed by Malaria PArtners International,  World Vision, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and Pilgrim Africa. This grant is tackling malaria with a $1.2 million investment.

This project strengthens the public health infrastructure by serving 700,000 residents in two districts of Uganda where there is a high prevalence of malaria. Village Health Teams (VHTs) are being trained, and equipped to serve 312 villages in Katakwi and 339 villages in Soroti.

This project aims to control malaria transmission and decrease morbidity and mortality using the evidence-based strategy of Integrated Community Case Management (iCCM) implemented by Village Health Team workers (VHTs).

The program trains and equips 1,700 Village Health Workers and strengthens the Ministry of Health’s capacity to conduct ongoing supervision of service levels and data reporting.

iCCM equips CHWs with the knowledge and tools to diagnose, treat, and refer cases promptly of malaria, pneumonia, and diarrhea, ensuring timely interventions in remote areas.
