Audit of USAID/Tanzania’s Ongoing Activities Under the President’s Malaria Initiative.
Fiscal Year: 2011
Audit Report Available: Yes
In 2006 Tanzania was one of three countries where USAID began its PMI activities, with a goal to reduce malaria deaths by 50 percent by reaching 85 percent of the most vulnerable people (pregnant women and children under age 5) through prevention and treatment activities. First-year key activities focused on spraying indoor residual insecticides and distributing insecticide-treated mosquito nets on the island of Zanzibar.
These interventions succeeded in reducing malaria cases on Zanzibar, and PMI activities were extended to the mainland. The PMI budget in Tanzania was $52 million in FY 2010—$46.8 million budgeted for the mainland and $21.3 million for commodities.
This audit will determine whether (1) USAID/Tanzania’s mainland PMI activities are reducing malaria-related deaths by 50 percent by reaching 85 percent of the most vulnerable segments of the population with prevention and treatment interventions, (2) program results reported by USAID/Tanzania’s mainland activities under PMI are complete and accurate, and (3) USAID/Tanzania’s earlier success in reducing malaria cases on Zanzibar has been sustained.
