The Liberia National Malaria Strategic Plan 2021–2025 redefines the strategic direction and focus of the malaria program, including strengthening of management and coordination structures, health systems, and capacities to achieve greater equity, coverage, quality, and more effective delivery of the interventions. In addition, the malaria NSP includes plans for preparedness and timely response during emergencies to ensure malaria control activities continue with minimal disruptions in an emergency (e.g., Ebola virus disease or coronavirus).

Social and behavior change (SBC) interventions like mass media, interpersonal communication, and community engagement play a critical role in improving health outcomes. Yet gaps in information on the costs and impacts of SBC interventions mean an incomplete picture of the value of SBC interventions, their contributions to social and health outcomes, and potential cost savings from implementing SBC programming for malaria.
