Plan Strategique 2011-2015 de Lutte Contre le Paludisme au Burkina Faso

The performance review of the implementation of interventions against malaria in Burkina Faso during the period 2002 to 2010 showed significant progress in the fight against malaria across the country.

Despite the decisions to change policy to include the adoption of combination therapies, the care home case (PECADO), universal LLIN distribution and residual spraying (IRS) and the encouraging results from those implementations, major efforts were still needed to face up to this major endemic.

The 2011-2015 strategic plan provided a unifying framework for the mobilization of all resources. It aimed to achieve, by 2015, national and international objectives in the field of the fight against malaria. To do this, seven strategic areas were identified in this plan: improving the case management, strengthening prevention of malaria in pregnant women and children, the fight against vectors, strengthening communication, management of the supply of antimalarial drugs, strengthening the monitoring and evaluation, research and improved program management.
