Fighting Malaria

Fact Sheet

MSH has been fighting malaria for three decades in over 40 countries. In partnership with national malaria control programs (NMCPs), donors, and international and local stakeholders, MSH helps countries scale-up proven interventions to combat malaria, while building the capacity of health systems and developing innovative tools and technologies to prevent and treat the disease.

MSH focuses on building strong health systems that deliver high-quality health services. In the case of malaria, we do this by developing accreditation standards—such as treatment guidelines—and building capacity of district officials, health workers, and community members. In Benin, for example, MSH is supporting health departments in establishing benchmarks and leveraging health data to guide officers and health workers toward improving the quality of service delivery for malaria and other illnesses.
