Prevention is critical in reducing morbidity and mortality due to malaria. Currently, there are several interventions for the prevention of malaria that are approved by WHO and supported by donors and the RBM partnership for scale up in endemic countries. These include the distribution and use of insecticide-treated nets (ITNs), indoor residual spraying (IRS), uptake of intermittent preventive treatment in pregnancy (IPTp), and seasonal malaria chemoprophylaxis (SMC).
MSH implements many projects that promote integrated health service delivery, including integrating family planning and reproductive health and HIV & AIDS, maternal, neonatal, and child health, and nutrition services. MSH integrates services by: Strengthening the integration of HIV prevention and management in the minimum package of priority health services offered at the service delivery sites
We know that HIV is preventable and that treatment is available that allows people to live full lives, but work remains to ensure that all people who are HIV-infected are aware of their status and can access the services they need on a life-long basis. We are working together as a global community to reach the UNAIDS 90-90-90 goals: 90 percent of people living with HIV diagnosed by 2020 90 percent of diagnosed people on antiretroviral treatment by 2020 90 percent of people in treatment with fully suppressed viral load by 2020
A principal strategy for MSH’s gender-sensitive programming is engaging and empowering women and girls as both consumers and suppliers of health services. Engaging women and girls in the design of health project ensures that activities respond to their actual and expressed needs, rather than perceived needs.
