proportion of malaria cases OPD 41% of all OPD cases 42% of all OPD <5 yrs cases 39 of all OPD >5 yrs cases Malaria problem All admissions 1,380,464 -690,690 = < 5 yrs -689,774 = > 5 yrs Proportion of malaria Deaths out of total Deaths - 34.4 deaths/total population -39.0 deaths/< 5yrs population - 30.1/>5yrs population ACHIEVEMENTS 2003/04 Malaria case management

Training of health personnel and tutors on management of malaria and supervisory skills Conducted follow-up after training to Prescribers in 38 districts Trained 550 MCH workers on the use of IPT and promotion of ITNs Revised, guideline on Focused Ante-Natal Care. It is in press Carried out monitoring for 1st and 2nd line drugs (SP and Amodiaquine) at 4 sites. Results show that there resistance to SP is reached the levels where the process of changing policy should start Applied for and received GFATM funding for ACTs Vector control Produced 1st draft guideline on Integrated Vector Control Contracted out to NIMR testing for vector pyrethroids resistance countrywide, results will be available in early 2005

Launch and rolling out of TNVS: Training of RCH staff and retailers, advocacy, distribution of voucher Increase of Ngao sales, in 2003 over 3 million kits Prevention and control of malaria epidemics Establishment of Early detection system Capacity building of CHMTs on the system for early detection and dissemination of the system Emergency stocks of anti-malarial drugs, insecticides and sprayers were procured and distributed to 10 epidemic prone districts Capacity building on data management Follow up of implementation of EDS IEC and Community Mobilization

Draft guideline on Malaria Communication Strategy was produced; Commemoration of Africa Malaria Day Malaria messages were aired in the media, all year round, thanks to efforts of our partner-PSI Advocacy to Members of Parliamentarians on Malaria controls Programme Management WHO recruited a data Manager who was posted to work at NMCP Supervision of epidemic prone districts Collected malaria data for 2002/2003 from all districts

Creating malaria data base at NMCP National Bureau of Statistics agreed to include some of the indicators on ITNs in the forthcoming Demographic and Health Survey Programme management cont. National Malaria/IMCI Conference was held in Dodoma in April 2004, the theme was addressing malaria control challenges at district level The meeting was attended by over 260 participants of which 121 were District Medical Officers Technical meeting met as scheduled. Appointed District Malaria and IMCI focal persons Finance

In 2003/2004 NMCP budgeted 1.8 million US$ from the MTEF (Mid Term Expenditure Framework. Over 90% of the budgeted funds were received Challenges Lack of malaria communication strategy Parasite resistance Cost and availability of ACTs Operationalisation of ACTs: affordability Involvement of the private sector, compliance Poverty and accessibility to malaria interventions what do we do with the most disadvantaged population Involvement of other key Ministries is not easy under current organizational set-up of NMCP

Human resource constraints at all levels Opportunities Government Commitment Abuja declaration, MDG goals, malaria a priority health problem, HSR process and reinforcement of District Health Systems Partner commitment and involvement Increasing IMCI coverage Partner: Private sector involvement the Cocacola initiative, TANAAM (NGOs), Management Science for Health , Research and Training Institutions etc GFATM Priorities for 2004/05 Finalisation of Communication Strategy Continue the process towards drug policy change to ACT Explore the potential that Tanzania has in the agricultural production of Artemisia annua In collaboration with partners explore mechanism for funding for ACTs beyond GFATM

Priorities Capacity building and training of district Malaria/IMCI focal persons Anti-malarial drug quality Supervision, Monitoring and Evaluation Operational Research- Efficacy, vector resistance Implement the ITNs Voucher Scheme Priorities for 04/05 Strengthen Surveillance systems for monitoring malaria epidemics Data base for malaria updated EVALUATION OF 2001-2003 Summary report based on 2001 and 2003 monitoring Where are we?
