Overview

PWA's Malaria Prevention Programme (MPP) delivers a range of malaria screening, prevention, and education services which allow local families to protect themselves. Based on the high level of infant and child mortality associated with malaria in our local communities, this programme, quite simply, saves lives. Having passed through it's Phase-1 research, testing & implementation, our MPP is now being scrutinsed by our monitoring & evaluation team to prepare our 2017 MPP scope of works.
