Yet malaria is 100% preventable and treatable.Many countries have made significant strides in combatting malaria but none have reached the Roll Back Malaria (RBM) targets of covering 80% of affected populations with life-saving malaria prevention and treatment measures by 2010.
What Jhpiego Is Doing?Jhpiego stands as a committed partner of the RBM Partnership to fight malaria worldwide and achieve one of the Millennium Development Goal 6 targets—reduce malaria morbidity and mortality by half as well as reduce child mortality and improve maternal health. Jhpiego supports efforts worldwide to ensure that pregnant women and their unborn babies are safe from the harmful impact of malaria. Jhpiego’s approach addresses malaria prevention and control comprehensively across the health “continuum of care,” from the community to health facility to national level. Jhpiego also support countries to ensure that young children and adults, in addition to pregnant women, are receiving prevention and treatment for malaria.
