Impact(s): In conjunction with national malaria programs and partners, PMI is achieving significant impact. In Zambia and Rwanda, over the past three years, there were notable declines in malaria parasite prevalence, a 53% decline in Zambia from 22% to 10% and prevalence falling below 3% in Rwanda. In addition, recent national household surveys have shown dramatic reductions in all-cause child mortality in seven countries (Tanzania, Madagascar, Ghana, Zambia, Senegal, Rwanda, and Kenya) ranging from 19% to 35%. While the declines cannot be credited to malaria interventions alone, the rapid scale up of malaria control intervention measures suggests that they have significantly contributed to the declines.
