Objective

"“In Africa today, malaria is understood to be both a disease of poverty and a cause of poverty."" Nevertheless, malaria is a preventable and curable disease. According to the Abuja declaration, the goal is to halve malaria mortality in Africa by 2010.” (WHO, 2008, Status Report on Malaria in the African region). This report also states that most of the African countries within the region are attempting universal access to malaria prevention and control in the at risk areas. Fundamental is the control and management of the vector. There is a need for accurate and effective monitoring and evaluation systems as a resource to inform decisions that will assist in achieving these goals. Partnership between and within countries are essential to assist with access to and sharing of resources.

The primary objective of MALAREO is to develop technology and implement EO capacities within malaria vector control and management programs in southern Africa. To achieve this objective, knowledge exchange and capability will occur in two directions (EU <-> SA). By doing this, the project will contribute to the installation of an EO monitoring cell that will support the daily work of the national malaria control programs."
