Pour lutter contre le paludisme, le Ministère de la Santé à travers le Programme national de lutte contre le paludisme (PNLP) a élaboré un plan stratégique national de troisième génération couvrant la période allant de 2013 à 2017. Il a été approuvé en février 2014 lors de la signature de l’aide-mémoire de la revue de performance du PNLP. Pour réaliser cet important volet du PSN, le PNLP, en collaboration avec ses partenaires, a élaboré en octobre 2014 et amendé en 2016 une grille nationale de supervision formative intégrée. C’est dans cette optique que s’inscrit cette supervision formative intégrée dans les directions préfectorales de la santé de Labé et de Mali du 5 au 14 août 2016, qui doit déboucher sur l’élaboration des plans de résolution des problèmes identifiés au niveau des structures.

The Government of South Sudan expends significant resources in the fight against malaria. With support from development partners, it has invested in personnel, infrastructure, and the procurement and distribution of malaria commodities in the country. As one of the key partners supporting government efforts to control malaria, SIAPS has been working to build the capacity of the National Malaria Control Program (NMCP), a government organization responsible for the planning, coordination, and general oversight of all malaria prevention and control activities, including fulfilling Roll Back Malaria and MIS requirements.
To this end, SIAPS has been supporting NMCP in performing its core functions, including planning, coordinating, and implementing malaria interventions. This includes providing on-the-job training and conducting routine supportive supervision; coordinating with other USAID and global health partners to provide malaria case management training; and helping to ensure effective management of essential antimalaria commodities in the country.
