CAF-810-G08-M - Central African Republic

Scaling up of the "Roll Back Malaria" project in Central African Republic

Malaria is endemic in the Central African Republic (CAR) all year round and represents the highest cause of death and morbidity. According to the 2011 estimates of the Ministry of Health, malaria accounts for 40 percent of all consultations and hospitalizations, with a prevalence of 31.8 percent in children under five years of age. The Round 8 proposal supports the national Strategic Plan for 2007 to 2011, aiming to scale up anti-malaria efforts for all affected populations. Activities include: acquisition and distribution of insecticide-treated nets acquisition and use of Rapid Diagnostic Tests (RDTs) for all presumptive malaria cases; procurement and distribution of anti-malarial drugs; training for health care staff; and strengthening the National Malaria Control Program (NMCP) institutional, technical and managerial capacities.
