Audit of USAID’s Commodities for Malaria Prevention and Treatment.

Country: Africa Regional
Fiscal Year: 2010
Agency: USAID
Audit Report Available: No

On June 30, 2005, the President launched the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI)—a 5-year, $1.2 billion initiative to rapidly scale-up malaria prevention and treatment interventions in 15 target countries in sub-Saharan Africa. Malaria is the primary killer of children in the region, causing the death of at least 1 million infants and children under age 5 every year. The goal of PMI is to reduce malaria mortality by 50 percent by achieving 85 percent coverage of the most vulnerable people (pregnant women and children under age 5) with four key interventions:

  • Artemisinin-based combination therapy drugs, which are the most effective and fast-acting available for malaria treatment
  • Intermittent preventative treatment, which is provided to pregnant women to prevent or reduce the severity of malaria
  • Indoor spraying
  • Insecticide-treated mosquito nets

This audit will determine whether USAID procured, stored, and distributed commodities for the prevention and treatment of malaria to help ensure that prevention and treatment goals are achieved.
