Organisational background

Established in 2003, Malaria Consortium is one of the world’s leading non-profit organisations specialising in the comprehensive prevention, control and treatment of malaria and other communicable diseases among vulnerable and under privileged populations.

We increasingly find our work on malaria can be effectively integrated with other similar public health interventions for greater impact and therefore expanded our remit to include child health and neglected tropical disease interventions.

We work in Africa and Asia with communities, governments, academic institutions, and local and international organisations, to ensure effective delivery of services, which are supported by strong evidence.

Our areas of expertise include :

  • disease prevention, diagnosis and treatment
  • disease control and elimination
  • systems strengthening
  • research, monitoring and evaluation leading to best practice
  • behaviour change communication
  • national and international advocacy and policy development
  • Country and project background

    Malaria Consortium began working in Mozambique in 2005, supporting the development of distribution systems for long lasting insecticidal nets in the country.

    Our work grew from there to focus on public health communications that sought to increase malaria awareness and preventive behaviours, particularly among school children and teachers.

    Using malaria as an entry point, we expanded into integrated community health projects that focused on diagnosing and treating the most common childhood illnesses mainly malaria, pneumonia and diarrhea.

    Throughout, we have consistently strived to integrate our work into government-led health programmes and ensure sustainability.

    After the completion of a short malaria surveillance planning grant, Malaria Consortium is starting a 3 years implementation grant looking at strengthening malaria surveillance in Mozambique.

    This project will pursue the following outcomes :

  • Improved availability, demand and use of quality (malaria and coverage) data informing decision making;
  • Malaria surveillance transformed as a key intervention guiding operational and strategic decision making across all strata;
  • A routine iMISS-related monitoring and accountability action log established, implemented and followed up; and
  • Sustained capacity for surveillance all levels.
  • This project would require field implementation in the selected provinces.
