Malaria Case Management Collection home page

Malaria is a major public health problem in Ethiopia. About 75% of the total area of the country is considered malarious and about 60% of the population living in these areas is at risk of malaria. According to the World Malaria Report of 2015 (WMR 2015), the country reported an estimated 2.1 million malaria cases and 213 deaths in 2013. The National Malaria Prevention, Control and Elimination Program (NMCP) strategy (NSP 2014-2020) aims to achieve the goals of near zero malaria deaths (no more than 1 confirmed malaria death per 100,000 population at risk); reduction of malaria cases by 75% from baseline of 2013; and elimination of malaria in selected low transmission areas. To achieve the goals and objectives set out, the National Malaria Prevention, Control and Elimination program needs to have appropriately planned and targeted delivery of essential malaria interventions, including: early diagnostic testing of suspected malaria and prompt treatment of confirmed cases with effective artemisinin-based combination therapy (ACT); and application of appropriate vector control interventions, particularly the use of insecticide-treated nets (LLINs) and indoor residual spraying (IRS). To implement these interventions, the availability and readiness of trained and skilled health workforce is critical.
