PATH - Lusaka, Lusaka
PATH is a global organization that works to accelerate health equity by bringing together public institutions, businesses, social enterprises, and investors to solve the world’s most pressing health challenges. With expertise in science, health, economics, technology, advocacy, and dozens of other specialties, PATH develops and scales solutions—including vaccines, drugs, devices, diagnostics, and innovative approaches to strengthening health systems worldwide.
Funded by the United States President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI), the Program for the Advancement of Malaria Outcomes (PAMO) is a 5-year project that aims to control and prevent malaria morbidity and mortality, and thereby minimize the social effects and economic losses. It also contributes to the reduction of under-five all-cause mortality rate, as a result of reduced malaria mortality. This project which is working in 4 target provinces, namely Eastern, Muchinga, Northern and Luapula, will strengthen the Ministry of Health’s capacity to implement the National Malaria Elimination Strategic Plan (NMESP) at provincial, district, and community levels. The project which is now in its third year of implementation is building strong effective partnerships with communities, civil society, health facilities, provincial and district health offices (PHOs and DHOs), the private sector, and cooperating partners to scale-up and maintain internationally accepted strategies to fight malaria. PATH is the lead partner of the consortium that is implementing this project.
