About the project

This project aims at complementing existing initiatives in addressing malaria through value addition by promoting sustainable approaches that put the intended beneficiaries at the centre. One of the greatest challenges facing community initiatives is lack of sustainability immediately the sponsor withdraws.

In Kenya, malaria is responsible for one out of every four child deaths (WHO). It impacts economic growth and productivity, and almost 170 million working days are lost annually due to the disease (African Medical & Research Foundation). About 70% of the population of Kenya is at risk of malaria. Malaria accounts for 30-50% of all outpatient attendance and 20% of all admissions to health facilities. The most vulnerable group to malaria infections are pregnant women and children under 5 years of age.

Coalition against malaria project targets the highlands of Kenya which constitute a densely populated, politically significant area, which serves as a major source of revenue and foreign exchange from agricultural exports. The project aims at promoting a reproductive and productive generation free of malaria burden.
