Project Summary

 

For over ten years, malaria was the major cause of illness and death in children under the age of 5 in Chad. The UNDP-managed Global Fund grant for malaria aimed to reduce malaria-related morbidity and mortality in Chad by increasing coverage of key prevention and treatment interventions. Funded activities include the purchase and distribution of insecticide-treated nets, mass media campaigns, community outreach to improve the acceptability of nets and promote their use, diagnosis by microscopy or rapid testing, treatment with artemisinin-based combination therapy (ACT), and intermittent preventive treatment for pregnant women.
