With the new Global Fund financing model, IMA World Health implements malaria interventions in 35 health zones in North Kivu (33 health zones) and South Kivu (two health zones) provinces. Through this program, IMA has launched 163 health sites, providing malaria prevention, screening and care to thousands at risk.

In fiscal year 2016:

  • 207,688 pregnant women received a long-lasting insecticide treated net through the system, as well as prenatal consultations and preschool medical screening for children.
  • Out of 1,065,595 patients suspected of malaria, 93 percent of cases were tested in health facilities and community care sites using Rapid Diagnostic Tests or Stained Blood Films.
