Communication and Social Mobilization for Malaria Prevention and Control in Myanmar

This proposed communication strategy intends to increase and sustain malaria prevention and treatment seeking behaviors among identified at-risk groups in particular and raise awareness of malaria prevention throughout the country. The strategy will link the various efforts of partners towards intensifying malaria prevention and early treatment. In the process, it will also increase their complementarity.

These interventions are premised on the following strategic directions:

  • Prioritizing the most vulnerable populations and adapting strategies to their characteristics
  • Evidence-based malaria control, anchored on strong health systems and contributing to strengthening health systems
  • Malaria control implemented by a well-coordinated partnership led by the Ministry of Health
  • Community-based malaria control
