Between 30th to 3rd November 2022, PACE was physically represented at the 2022 American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (ASTMH) annual meeting. This follows the 2 years of Virtual engagements of the annual that were caused by COVID 19 restriction.
PACE was represented by Kato Joel the research officer in the 4-day Meeting in Seattle, USA. At the event, he interacted with several Tropical medicine and Global health professionals representing academia, foundations, government, not for profit organizations, non-governmental organizations, the private sector, military and private practice and showcased our malaria work in Uganda. Unlike the 2021, conference where our research team attended the meeting virtually due to the COVID-19 restrictions, the 2022 it was different as both virtual and physical presence was accorded. We are grateful to the Ministry of Health Uganda, National Malaria Control Division (NMCD) that provided us space at their stall to exhibit our malaria research and programs.

On the on the 2nd of November, Joel held a poster presentation where he disseminated findings on Community Health worker (VHT) service readiness in provision of Integrated Community Case Management (iCCM) services among children under 5 years in Uganda.
Findings presented were from the 2020 iCCM study that PACE conducted across all regions in Uganda. The study was funded by the Global Fund through the Ministry of Health. It was conducted in coordination with national iCCM stakeholders including the Uganda National Malaria Control Division (NMCD), Maternal and Child Health Division and relevant district officials in the selected districts such as DHOs, iCCM District Coordinators and the In-charges of the Health Facilities.
The main objective of the study was to understand the implementation of the Integrated Community Case Management intervention (iCCM), its dynamics and processes for integration and coordination. It is worth noting that the study results were used to inform the review of the iCCM implementation guidelines by the Uganda MoH National Malaria Control Division (NMCD).
