Malaria

MEASURE Evaluation PIMA works with the Malaria Control Unit at the Ministry of Health to strengthen capacity of malaria monitoring and evaluation, to improve collection, analysis, and use of data for strategic decisions.

In Kenya, key interventions against malaria, such as insecticide-treated nets, preventive treatment during pregnancy, indoor spraying, diagnostics, and first-line drugs have helped to decrease the incidence of this life-threatening disease. However, malaria remains a health priority in the country, where it is a leading cause of death and adversely affects economic growth and development.

Improved high-quality data and strengthened health systems at all levels will better guide program implementation and measure achievements in the Kenya National Malaria Strategy 2009-2017. MEASURE Evaluation PIMA (MEval-PIMA) works with the Malaria Control Unit at the Ministry of Health to strengthen capacity of malaria monitoring and evaluation (M&E), to improve collection, analysis, and use of data for strategic decisions. Additionally, we work with counties with endemic high malaria infection to strengthen their capacity to routinely monitor and evaluate key malaria indicators.

Key areas of focus:

  • Capacity building for M&E through trainings and workshops;
  • Strengthening malaria surveillance systems, including malaria surveillance curriculum development and training roll-out;
  • Providing technical assistance (TA) for evaluations; and
  • Overall TA in implementing the national M&E plan.
