Stop Malaria in its tracks
In areas with high transmission of malaria, children under five are particularly susceptible to infection, illness and death; more than two thirds(70%) of all malaria deaths occur in this age group. Malaria remains a major killer of children under five, taking the life of a child almost every minute.
The Stop Malaria in Its Tracks project uses innovative behavioural change initiatives to promote accountability with healthcare providers, community leaders, and the District Health Management Teams in Malawi. Working at different levels of government and the health care system, this project is engaging communities with awareness, prevention, and treatment.
The beneficiary reach is expected to increase over the course of the project, impacting neighbouring villages and communities. Factors that contribute towards this reach include CPAR’s pay-it-forward approach, the willingness with which participants share their knowledge, and the interest generated by demonstrating successful results. CPAR’s pay-it-forward approach also ensures the long-term sustainability of the project as CPAR actively encourages project participants to share and apply the knowledge the knowledge and skills they gain.
