Malaria and other communicable diseases

Health Partners International has supported communicable disease control for tuberculosis, malaria and neglected tropical diseases and other emerging infectious diseases in sub Saharan Africa for over a decade.

In partnership with ministries of health and local stakeholders, we assist in building local capacity for the management, control, prevention and eradication of communicable diseases.

We support countries at national and state level by providing technical assistance for research, implementation, community engagement, policy development and strengthening of health systems for mobilising, coordinating, distributing and using and sustaining resources for disease control.

HPI’s core areas of expertise relevant to malaria and other communicable diseases include:

  • Increasing quality and coverage of diagnostic and treatment services for Tuberculosis, Malaria and Neglected Tropical Diseases as a result of extensive training of health workers, and the development of a strong pool of trainers.
  • Establishing procurement, logistics and management systems for continuous routine distribution of long lasting insecticidal nets and drugs for preventative treatment.
  • Collaborating to develop coherent policy and strategy for disease control and monitoring and evaluation and translating policies into operational planning and practice.
  • Increasing access to health services through the design and implementation of community-led strategies to reach the hard-to-reach.
  • Strengthening capacity for supply-side and demand-side programming.
