HEALTH COMPONENT (Malaria, Tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS Control)

In the fight against malaria, the Cameroonian government has been supported for several years by Global Fund grants through its New Funding Model (NFM). The current 2021-2023 malaria grant (NMF3) follows the 2018-2020 grant (NMF2). This grant funds community-based malaria interventions through an integrated approach. Thus, the Ministry of Public Health (MINSANTE) in its capacity as Principal Recipient (PR) is implementing this grant through the National Malaria Control Programme (NMCP) with Plan International Cameroon which is one of the two Sub-Recipients (SR) working in eight regions (Adamaoua, Centre, East, Far North, Littoral, North, West and South) of Cameroon. His responsibility is to accompany the NMCP in the optimal implementation of Community Directed Interventions (CDI) for the priority malaria control programme of MINSANTE. This collaboration was materialised through the signing of a partnership agreement for the sub-project entitled « Scaling up malaria control for high impact » whose objective is to reduce malaria mortality and morbidity by 60% by 2023, compared to the situation in 2015. Plan International Cameroon, as a community-based RH, is therefore implementing the community-based activities selected in the funding request for the period 2021-2023, including prevention at COVID 19 in 53 health districts in the 8 regions. The implementation of community activities in these regions is carried out by 3790 community health workers placed under the technical and administrative supervision of 53 District Civil Society Organisations (DCOs) and area chiefs. WESDE is one of the DCSOs chosen by Plan International Cameroon to work with 125 CHWs and 13 health area chiefs in the MERI health district in the Far North region.
