The five-year USAID-funded U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) Uganda Malaria Reduction Activity aims to improve the survival and well-being of Uganda’s most vulnerable pregnant women and children in selected regions of the country. The Activity works with the Government of Uganda to improve technical, managerial, financial, and leadership capacity at all levels of the health care delivery system. PMI Uganda Malaria Reduction Activity aims to strengthen community and household capacity to own and take responsibility for prevention of malaria and accessing high-quality malaria services, while maintaining gains made at the health facility level. In addition, PMI Uganda Malaria Reduction Activity works with targeted private – for – profit health care facilities to strengthen case management, early referral, and data management
