Project Example

Communication for Malaria: Diagnostic Testing Toolkit

This toolkit is a resource for communication materials designed to promote testing for malaria and adherence to test results. This site includes radio and print materials aimed at parents and the general public. It also contains materials designed to improve providers’ skills in managing fever cases and communicating with patients and caregivers.

These resources were developed under the leadership and endorsement of the Ugandan National Malaria Control Program and were supported by the USAID/PMI-funded AFFORD and Stop Malaria Projects. They were launched under the banners of the “Don’t Guess, First Test” and “Power of Day One” campaigns.

All of the tools are available in English and some are also available in local languages. They have been tested and used in Uganda and are available for download and adaptation.
