Malaria Newsletter: April 2016

Welcome to the 2016 Edition of the Malaria Newsletter! We are glad you are reading. In this edition, you will find information on the tremendous work that is being done by the National Malaria Control Programme (NMCP) and its partners to reduce malaria-related morbidity and mortality in South Sudan.

This April 25, 2016, South Sudan joins the rest of the world in commemorating World Malaria Day with the national theme, “Towards Malaria-Free South Sudan.” This national theme meshes well with the global theme of “End Malaria for Good.” As indicated in the findings of the 2009 and 2013 Malaria Indicators Survey, South Sudan is making steady progress in the fight against malaria. But, the country is still a ways off from achieving the targets set in the 2007-2013 National Malaria Strategic Plan. It is imperative that the Ministry of Health (MOH) continues to scale up and sustain all malaria interventions in the country.
