Globally, millions of deaths attributable to malaria are still being recorded. The disease constitutes a huge epidemiologic burden in Africa and continues to cripple the economic development in the region.

In Nigeria, the disease is responsible for 60% outpatient visits to health facilities, 30% childhood death, 25% of death in children under one year and 11% maternal death. The financial loss due to malaria annually is estimated to be about by 132 billion Naira in form of treatment costs, prevention, loss of man-hours etc; yet, it is a treatable and completely evitable disease.

The Vision

A malaria free Nigeria

The Mission

To free Nigerians from the scourge of Malaria through Leadership and Coordination in Developing Policies, Strategies and Guidelines that would ensure the delivery of High Impact Malaria Intervention equitably with a high sense of Accountability.

The Goal

To halve the burden of malaria by the year 2010 and thus ensure that the disease no longer constitute a public health problem.

Strategic interventions

Progress So Far

Since the inception of the Roll Back Malaria Initiative, malaria control in Nigeria has undergone an evolution that has resulted in the attainment of several milestones which have served to set the stage for the next phase in the implementation process: rapid scaling up of interventions.
These milestones include among others, development and adoption of national policies and guidelines development of training manuals; sensitization and training of health workers and stakeholders on all interventions
