CDC's Global Malaria Activities

This video is a montage of pictures of CDC personnel working in various countries around the world.

CDC participates actively in global malaria efforts

  • through work with Roll Back Malaria partners, including the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations' Children's Fund (UNICEF), the World Bank, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), International Red Cross, and Expanded Program on Immunization; and
  • through work directly with Ministries of Health in malaria-endemic countries, as well as local disease prevention and control partners (e.g., the national malaria control program, the reproductive health program responsible for maternal health, the child health program).

CDC has several international cooperative agreements to address pertinent research questions and to implement prevention programs. These span the spectrum of policy development, program guidance and support, scientific research, and monitoring and evaluation of progress toward Roll Back Malaria goals.

In addition, in the last decade, CDC has also provided direct staff support to WHO; UNICEF; the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria; and the World Bank – all stakeholders in the Roll Back Malaria (RBM) Partnership.

CDC’s malaria experts also lend their expertise to numerous global malaria-focused committees and working groups.

President’s Malaria Initiative

The President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) is a U.S. government initiative designed to cut malaria deaths in half in target countries in sub-Saharan Africa. CDC and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) jointly implement the initiative, which is led by USAID.

CDC’s key contributions to PMI include monitoring and evaluation, surveillance, entomologic support, and capacity development for national malaria control programs.
