Muheza Malaria Intervention Project
In May 2021, the Muheza Malaria Intervention Project distributed 1,411 Long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLINS) in Muheza and providing a basic training on Malaria to Community health volunteers (CHWs). This Malaria Partners International small grant project, in collaboration with RAM-Global and the Rotary Club of Moshi, Tanzania, awarded $5,167 for the purpose of malaria control in health centers and boarding schools located in two coastal Districts: Pangani and Muheza.
The CHW training was facilitated by a professional trainer from National institute of research (NIMR) with help of Malaria focus person under National Malaria intervention guidelines.
LLINs were provided and installed in the hospitals, health centers, dispensaries and government boarding schools. A malaria focal person from the Ministry of Health will conduct follow up visits to ensure good net usage.
“It has been my pleasure with my Rotaractor colleagues to take lead of the project which has really been amazing and impactful,” said Aloyce Paul Urassa, Rotaractor and project leader.
On September 8th, 2023, the Rotary International President Gordon McInally announced that Rotary and its partners World Vision and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation will be implementing the Rotary Healthy Communities Challenge which will build on the successes of the Partners for a Malaria-Free Zambia project and scale that work to 3 other countries.
Malaria Partners West Africa has been engaging with PATH and The Gambia’s Ministry of Health and National Malaria Control Program (NMCP) to design a new initiative aimed at strengthening community case-based surveillance for malaria in the North Bank Regions of The Gambia.
