Mali

Titre : WobuWolo, Leveraging Economic Development Partnerships to Control Malaria in Mali

Pays : Mali

PROJECT PERIOD  : October 2009-December 2012

Contexte
To extend coverage of the President’s Malaria Initiative and Mali’s national malaria control efforts, LWR and USAID increased access to and use of malaria control services for 14,000 small farmers by : • Improving awareness for malaria prevention and care-seeking behavior ; • Increasing access to and use of existing malaria prevention and treatment services ; • Enhancing health outreach strategies and developing Community Health Solidarity Funds.

Results
These efforts have contributed to gains in vulnerable populations’ access to and use of national malaria prevention and treatment services, as follows :
* Net ownership in surveyed households in project areas rose from 66% in 2009 to 100% by the end of the project.
* The percentage of parents with children under five reporting that their child slept under a net the previous night increased from 27-31% in 2006 to 99% in 2011 and 2012.
* The percentage of pregnant women interviewed in the project zone who reported sleeping under a net the previous night rose from 31-40% in 2006 to 99% by the end of the project.
* The percentage of pregnant women receiving two or more doses of IPTp rose from 3-4% in 2006 to 81% by the project’s end.
* The percentage of children under 5 reporting a fever in the last two weeks who received treatment with ACTs in health facilities rose from 4-11% in 2006 to 91% by the end of the project.
