Join us!

The Association Camerounaise pour le Marketing Social (ACMS) has secured funding from the US Agency for International Development's (USAID) "System to End the Malaria Burden Through Meaningful Engagement (SEMBE I)" to support the National Malaria Control Program (NMCP) team to lead and implement evidence-based malaria prevention, diagnosis and treatment services at regional and community levels, focusing on the Far North region of Cameroon. This project also strengthens the Government's capacity to guide and promote local solutions in the fight against malaria, in line with the objectives of the Republic of Cameroon and in support of USAID's priorities outlined in the country's Development Cooperation Strategy 2020-2025 (CDCS).

Based in the Far North region, the project will implement a sustainable, evidence-based approach to malaria control and elimination, through four objectives:

- Objective 1: Increase access to and use of quality malaria diagnostics, insecticide-treated nets (ITNs) and drug-based prevention and treatment services at facility and community levels.

- Objective 2: Increase adoption of prevention and treatment-seeking behaviors for malaria and other febrile illnesses.

- Objective 3: Improve access to and use of quality malaria data.

- Objective 4: Strengthen health systems to optimize planning, coordination and management of the local response to malaria and other febrile diseases.
