Project Summary

Guinea-Bissau has a population of 1.7 million, with endemic malaria and high TB prevalence and incidence rates. Malaria is also a significant problem accounting for more than 50% of visits to health services nationwide. The UNDP-managed Global Fund malaria grant promotes the utilization of insecticide-treated bed nets (ITNs), and intermittent preventive treatment (ITP) for pregnant women according to national protocols. UNDP was nominated as principal recipient (PR) for the TB grant in May 2013, after the Grant Approvals Committee’s review revealed programmatic challenges and financial irregularities, compounded by the 2012 coup d’état. Since taking the role of PR, UNDP worked with partners to expand Directly Observed Treatment Short-course (DOTS) coverage and increase access to treatment for HIV/TB co-infected patients.
