Tanzania vector control activity


USAID - US President's Malaria Initiative (PMI) / John Hopkins Center for Communication Programs







The Issue

Ninety-three percent of the population in mainland Tanzania and the entire population of Zanzibar live in areas where there is malaria transmission. Under the USAID/PMI-funded Tanzania Vector Control Activity (TVCA), the Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs (CCP) and its partners are responsible for ensuring distribution of insecticide-treated mosquito nets (ITN) in schools and health facilities in 14 regions of mainland Tanzania and delivery through communities and health facilities in Zanzibar. The work is closely coordinated with Tanzania’s National Malaria Control Programme and the Ministry of Health.

Our Approach

Tropical Health will support the monitoring and evaluation components of the project, including ITN quantification for school, community, and health facility distribution, monitoring retail sales of untreated nets and ITN, and an annual vector control report. Data will be used to generate evidence for the NMCP and its technical and financial partners to inform strategies for ensuring ITN access and use.

Our Findings

Findings will be updated as the project progresses.
