                                   "halomhe Malaria Communities 1'rojcd
1. Executive Sum man'

Concern Universal (CU) proposes to implement the Malaria Communities Programme (Mep) in
Phalombe District in the southern region of Malawi in partnership with the Holy Family Hospital
(Christian Health Association of Malawi (CHAM» and the District Health Office (DHO). Proposed
start and end dates of the proje>:t are 1" October 2008 lind 30t~ Se ptember 2012. The total cost of the
project and the request from USAID is USS I,351,5JII. Estimated number of total population in
Phalombe District is 300,451 people. The project will target llnder-five children and pregnant mothers
who are the most vulncrable to malaria. Tne proposed primary beneficiaries in the proposed target area
are 66,000 people comprising 51,000 under-five children and 15.000 pregnant mothers (expected
pregnancies). The project will also target People Living with HIV and AIDS (PL WHA). Phalombe has
a high mv and AIDS prevalence of 18.8% (CU, 2006) i(compared to the national prevalence of 14%)
in the district as well as the poorest of the poor (i.e. the elderly, child-headed households, Orphans and
other Vulnerable Children (OVCs».

The overall objective of the proposed project is to reduce malaria associated mortality and morbidity by
50% compared to the current level. The project specific objectives arc : (i) Increased community
awareness and knowledge on malaria prevention, treatment and case management; (ii) Promotion of
correct and consistent use and treatment of Insecticide-Treated NelS (l1Ns); (iii) Increased access to
Intermittent Preventive Treatment (!pn; and, (iv) Building the capacity of indigenous organisations m
malaria management. Key activities to be implemented include community and local leaders malaria
education and sensitisation workshops; knowledge, altitudes and practices on malaria assessment and
conununity based strategy development in Ihe fight against malaria; conununity and school campaigns
and competitions and health talks; development and distribution of malaria IEC materials; ITN correct
use and treatment demonstrations; support to malaria week; formation of community based
organisations to support IPT: and training and capacity building of community based organisations in
the fight against malaria. Isslles of Gender, HIV and AIDS and environmem will also be mainstreamed.

Malaria is a major health problem in Malawi, especially among under-five children and pregnant
women. It is the commonest cause of outpatient visi ts, hospitalisation and death. f'halombe District has
been chosen as the target district bc<:ause of high under-five children malaria cases (62%). high malaria
cases of total population pegged at 21% and an increased percentage of malaria cases in out patient
attendance of 23% (HMW. 2007'). These stati stics indicate low adoption of malaria prevention
practices. This project fits very well with the President's Malaria Initiative (PMI) Malaria Operational
Plan and Strategy for Malawi and it addresses National Malaria Control Programme (NMCI» identified
needs and gaps. The project ",ill achieve this by increasing malaria awareness at community level,
promoting correct and consistent use of ITNs and IPT, and by building the capacity of indigenous
organisations in malaria control and management. CU will implement the proposed project in
partnership with CHAM and the DHO and in collaboration with the Phalombe District Assembly. the
NMCP. the PMI Team (United States Agency for International Development (USAlD) and Centres for
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Village Health Conunittees (Viles), and CommunityfFaith
Based Organisations (C!F HO) (approximately IS).

According to thc 2006-11 slr.I.tegy. CU will focus its efforts in five of Malawi's 28 districts v.hile 

maintaining ncxibility to respond to emergeocies wherever it ean make a significant difference. The 

fi\e districts are among !he poorest and densely poPulated centtnl (Ded7.a and Ntcheu) and southern

CU's main mode of operation is partnershi p with existing local structures including governmcnt 

(nationnl nnd local), NGO s, C/l1IJOs. the private sector, elC. Partnersh ips usually include participatory 

development of projects and joint implemcntation. monitoring and evaluation, The most appropriate 

panners for each initiative are determined based on the context of the project. thc structures that exist 

on the ground and the o"erall and specific objectives of the project. Each project idea is scrutinised to 

check if it fits well with local. national and international policies. prioritics and tarsets (for example, 

MOOs, Mala ....i Growth and [)e\'elopment Strategy {MGDS), NMCP, etc). Then the most appropriate 

role that CU could play is determi~d after taking into consideration what other stakeholders are 

already doing and the major gaps that CU could effectively filL In this particular project. CU will work 

in collaboration with a T1UIge of organisations including Phalombe District Assembly. the District

CU has morc than a dccadc of e",pericnec in designing, implementing and monitoring community-Icvel 

health programmcs in Africa and Asia including Malawi. CU strives to adopt and usc national and 

international monitoring indicators and systcms, CU's comparative advantage is related to its extensive 

experience in community mobilisation. scnsitisat ion and education, especially in the relevant areas of 

targeted nutrition, H[V and AIDS. and Hygiene Education and Sanitation Promotion (IIESP). CU has 

been implementing HESP initiatives in Malawi since the early 1990s and lIIV and AIDS and targeted 

nutrition in the last six years. In relation to malaria. CU has been supporti ng IW distribution through 

health centres in Dedza District and through village commillCt;'S in Thyolo District. II has also 

participated in the Southern Africa Dc\'clopment Community (SADC) mosquito net dipping campaign

Trend data for malaria in Phalombe District is illustrative of data collected and used at dislrict level.
The trend data in the Table 2 highhghts that Phalombe District continues 10 encounter significant
malaria problems. In as much as there has been an increase in ITN distribution in 2006, the impact on
malaria burden has been limited due to relatively low level of ITN usc and due to lack of distribution to
the remote and impoverished areas. This is another reason to implement Ihe proposed project in order
to maximise the impact oflTN distribution and other malaria control initiatives.

Although malaria incidence is not relatcd 10 malnutrition, fatality from malaria is directly related.
Indeed. the nutritional status of children impacts on disease outcomes and vulnerabi lity, Phalombe
Districi sho""S higher underweight. wasting, and stunting statuses than the national average putting
many children at risk of contracting complicated malaria leading 10 monality (see Table 3). A 10-year
survey (1997-2006) indicates that Phalombc is one of the three districts in Malawi with under-five
mortality rates above 150; this is higher than the national average (77) (MICS, 2006).

Current status of health care service delivery
As per the Decentralisation Policy, the District Commissioner is the head of the District Assembly
Secretariat and oversees all District Assembly activities including health. The District Health Office
(OHO) coordinates all district health activities undertaken by various stakeholders and reports to the
national Ministry. Phalombe District has onc CHAM hospital, 12 health centres, onc dispensary and 66
outreach clinics that are managed by the Ministry of Health or CHAM. Table 4 illustrates the different
types of malaria intervention implemented by institutions in Phalombe district. The district has no
government hospital, and there are no adequate health facilities, thus posing the problem of long
distance to the nearest health facil ities. This has also increased mortality rates in communities and late
accessibility to treatment of diseases (especially malaria). Patients in the district arc referred to a fee
paying Phalombe mission hospital run by CHAM . Along with preventive and curative services. the
hospital also offers minor surgery units, labora!ory, radiography and HIV and AIDS testing equipment.
Health centres in the district have maternity wings. Preventive and curative services are provided in the
health centre. The Dispensary mainly offers out patient services. Other important services like under­
five groMh monitoring, infonnation education and communication services are also offcred. Minor
ailmcnts arc treated in the health posts. Diseases commonly treated include malaria, eye infections,
diarrhoea and intestinal worms. As outlined earlicr, the district also has TBAs who assist with
reproductive health services at community level.

Poor road infrastructure, long distances to health faci lities. shortage of health personnel. lack of
medical supplies at health facilities, and the requirement of fees at CHAM facilities make access to
health care difficult for the vulnerable segments in rural and poor communities in Phalombe. As an
alternative. many people frequent trad itional healers as a source of medical care. These arc some of the
factors thai lead 10 low adoption of services that could help to reduce malaria by yulncrable segments
of the population in these districts. Self-medication is another dangerous practice Ihat is observed in the
distric\.

Loc al Partner Organisa tions and Process Used to llJ\'ol\"e Rclc\"ant Stakeh olders
Private sector inc ludes the CHAM that provides health care services for a fee . CIFBOs and NGOs
provide mostly public health services in the form of education and awareness raising and they also
promOle demand for health care services. The Malawi health sector is heavily reliant on development
partners for financial suppon and technical advice. The Global Fund for HIV and AIDS, Tuberculosis
and Malaria has provided resources to MoH for malaria control activities. The DHO. the CHAM
coordinator and their assistants have been consulted on the gaps in malaria control that this project
would address. They have been fully supportive and provided data and contributed ideas to the
development of the project. A memorandum of understanding will be dra\\TJ if the proposal is
successful. However. for now. two support letters arc attached (see Attachment 3) from Holy Family
Hospital (CHAM facility) and Phalombe DHO on projeet partnership wilh CU.

During these consultations, stakeholders identified the following activities thaI are required in
Phalombe District to reduce existing gaps in malaria prevention: a district wide survey on net usage:
insecticide residual sprn>'s in community households; malaria Infonnation, Education and
Conununication (IEC) matcrials in the communities: quarterly review meetings with health workers on
case management; monitoring and supervision of activities; the provision of ITNs; training volunteers
to re<!ognise signs and symptoms for malaria and take appropriate treatment within 24 hours of the
onset of symptoms; and, scaling up IPT for pregnant women. This CU projects proposes to address the
majority of these existing gaps (with the exception of insecticide residual sprays in community
households and the provision of rlNs) .

Population Services International (PSI), a US,bascd NGO, was consliited and they expressed an
opinion that although they have a national network to distribute ITNs, infi ltrating deep into the remote
areas with ITNs as well as education and public awareness has been a seriOliS challenge and this project
could focus on that niche. Successful implementation of this project would produce valuable lessons
regard ing strategies and approaches for a national and international malaria communities' progranune.

Goal and Objectives of the Proposed I'roject
The goal of the proposed project is to reduce malaria associated mortality and morbidity by 50%
compared 10 the pre-initiative leve l. The project specific objectives are to: (i) increase malaria
awareness at community level: (ii) promote correct and consistent use and treatment of ITN's: (ii i)
increase access to IPT; and, (iv) build the capacity of indigenous organisations in malaria management.
These objectives will have a primary emphasis and focus on pregnant women, chi ldren under five_
PLWHA, and other vulnerable groups (i.e. the elderly, child-headed households, OVCs), as well as at
general Phalombe community as appropriate. The goal of the proposed project is similar to the PMI
goal and MDGs while focusing on Phalombc District. The objectives of the programme arc also
directly related to the NMCP strdtcgy that advocates scaling up of IlNs, IPT. case management for
treatment of malaria cases, etc. and the proposed project provides an excel lent opponunity for
penctration into remote rural areas through community mobilisation, sensitisation and education, and
by making linkages with other specialised organisations who provide services such as ITN distribution
by PSI.

Overview of Pro posed Project Strat egy
As illustrated in the si tuation analysis, the adoption of malaria prevention practices in Phalombc
District is below both national and regional averages. This implies that both under-five chi ldren and
pregnant women are at high risk of contracting malaria_ In order to meet the goals of the PM I and
NMCP, the project will work in partnership with all stakeholders in the district (MoH staff at disuict
and community levels, CHAM_ PSI. VHCs, Ministry of Women and Child Development, etc) to
conduct malaria awareness campaigns through the yellow van. theatre for development, songs and
other relevant media in rural communities _It will also enhance malaria intervention in the home-based
care groups that exisl in the district

As the facilitating agent, CU plans to work with health surveillance assistants. CBOs (see Table 7), and
other extension staff to reach out to communities to train, inform, raise av.-areness and fill knowledge
gaps on malaria management and prevention. in order to increase adoption of existing and improved
malarial treatment and administration, particularly for pregnant women and under-five children_
PL WHA etc. as well as build community and institutional capacity. The ultimate goal is to empower
communities (particularly target groups) and increase sustainable local ownership to reduce the
prevalence of malaria in Phalombe Disu;ct, as well as assist service providers to provide quality and
timely services.
CU will work with VHCs that are already in the commumtles, and will facilitatc fonnation or
strengthening of such commiuees where they are non-existent or weak. Each village will havc a V!-!C
as well as volunteers who will be trained in basic malaria information. Regular village meetings on
health issues, especially malaria will be conducted. Information wi ll be provided on how to prevent
malaria infection and where to go to seek assistance if symptoms of malaria are observed. CU will
network with other service providers such as PSI and MoH to expand distribution of ll1'Js to remote
rural areas and potentially advocate for procurement of nets by the private st"Ctor. CU understands that
there are policy issues that are currently limiting subsidised 1m distribution to poor households cxccpt
those households that have under_ five children or pregnant women. Therefore. CU will work with the
GoM 10 encourage the development of!l1'J distribution systems at affordable prices that could benefit
the poorest segments of the community. CU wi ll use existing com munity structures to implement
activities under this initiative. especially building on the mv and AIDS activities and food security
projects that eu is already implementing in the district. Malaria activities will start in areas where there
are ongoing CU activities within the district and gradually scale up and move into new areas ultimately
covering the entire district by the second year of the project.

These approaches ensure a pragmatic, systematic and cost effective scale up Strategy and lessons
learned can be applied to speed up implementation in the new areas. Increasing awareness in a
sustained manner and bui lding capacity of local population will enhance demand for services and
commodities ncressary for malaria control. These approaches are key to suslainability of programmes
under the initiative because communities will understand their purpose and benefit and will, therefore,
appreciate and value (he programmes as their own. With concerted effort from the initiative and
willingness of beneficiaries to participate in the programmes, the targets can be achieved.

I)~Sfription   of Proposed Key Mal a ria Aetivitiu
Ii) To increase communitv awareness and knowledge on malaria prevention. treatment and case
management.
The plan is to ""Ork with communities to raise awareness of (he risks if malaria is left uncontrolled, the
signs of malaria and lreaUllent issues. There are myths about malaria in the communities that need to be
corrected. Discussions with the Phalombe DHO revealed that they mainl>· treat severe malaria cases
because people seek treaunent too late: this results in greater difficulty treating malaria, and may result
in death. The following are some of the key activities that will be implemented to achieve the specific
objective:
). Orient traditional leaders. traditional healers and VHCs on malaria prevention and control via
      workshops. panel discussions and open days. Knowledge, Attitude and Practice (KAP) assessments
      on malaria will also be cnnducted to assist in partici patory deve lopment of relevant malaria
      strategies for the commumties in the fight against malaria.
 ). 	 Facilitate community campaigns and health talks in all public community forums to raise awareness
      of the new malaria drugs, and access to drugs.
 ). 	 Develop malaria disease cycle posters and distribute. The project will facilitate production and
      distribution of malaria control IEC materials at health centres. schools and market CentreS that
      contain basic mformation on prevention, cont rol and treatment of malaria as well as symptoms of
      malaria.
 ). 	 The project will facilitate community and school campaigns to raise aWliTCness on health seeking
      behaviour. prevention and treatment of malaria. Campaigns on malaria management at community
      level will be conducted with men, women. boys and girls during regular village meetings and youth
      meetings. This activity will also stimulate behaviour changes on health seeking. CU will also work
      with education institutions especially primary schools to enhance young pc<lplc's understanding of
:;.. Train home based care volunteers in the new malaria drug administrntion and drug management in
     their drug kits.
,.. Train indigenous groups and school youths in theatre for development in malaria diagnosis. di sease
     cycle, prevention lII1d development of d f e<;tivc community based IEC materials.
:;.. Tmin Govcrnmcntllnd C HAM health staff in malaria case management.
:;.. Trai ning health C BOs in malaria data col lection and utilisation. The volunteers, VHCs and home
     based care groups will also be trained in data collC(:tion and panicipalOry M&E.
:;.. Train TBAs in malaria prcvl'ntion interventions including IPT & correct use and treatment of ITNs.

Rationale for selected population lII1d district:
The proposed project will be located in Phalombe District in the southern region of Mala ..... i (See
AUac hmcnl 3 for a map of the area). Phalombe is one of the 13 districts of the southern region . It
borders MOZlllllbique on the eastern sid c, Zomba District in the North and Mulanje District in thc west
and southern pan. Phal ombe District has been chosen as the target district because of low adoption of
malaria prevention pTllttices, high malnutrition levels for under-file children. and high HIV and AIDS
prevalence (18.8%) among others_ A IO-year period (1997-2006) survey illd ieates that Phalornbe is one
of the three districts in Mala"; "lth under-the mortality rate above I SO. higher than the national
a,'erage of 77 (MICS, 20(6). Major diseases in Phalombc District include malaria, HIV and AIDS.
malnutrition. diarrhoea. respiratory infections. Anaemia. Meningitis, Tuberculosis, Obstetric
complications and Malignancies. OU! of all thcse diseases. the leading causes of hospitalisation in the
district for all patients are ma laria and upper respiratory infection (S EP, 20(6). Phalombe is
predominantly roral with a few semi-urban centres. CU has substantial developmcnt activities in the
district and the proposed project ",;11 build on these activities and relationships and complement and
add value to its current dc" eiopmem work in HIV IlJld AIDS. food security and sustainable Ih·clihoods.

Although CU has been implementing the above activi ties, there remains a gap in addressing problems
of malaria, and this is 8 timely opportunity to include malaria prevention and control activities. The
simultaneous and integrated implementation of these interrelated activi ties is expected to result in a
significant improvemcnt in the health status and livelihoods of communities. The malaria intervention
will also build on, and add val ue to current CU's projects.

CU has gain ed extensive experience in working "ith and targeting under-five children, pregnant
mothers and other vulncrable groups such as PLWlIAs (the same target group for the malaria project).
CU is alrcady working ..... ith these ''llinerable groups IlJld this project ";11 provide an opportunity to add
a malaria pre\'ention and control component tbat has been largely missing so far. CU also has
experience in distributing ITNs in therapeutic feedi ng centres, especially in Dedl.a District. Th is project
will admcate for scaling up of IlN distribution at affordabl e prices. especially in remote rural arcas. in
collaboration with Moll and CBOs. as well as lobbyi ng the private sector for financial contributions.

Adoption of good heal th pTllttices (such as slceping under IlNs) will hclp to control malaria in the
most vulnerable segments of the population in the southern region, which is generally below the
national average (see Table I). Similarly. the target district falls below the regional average of ITN
O"lIership and usc highlighting the priority that this district deserves priority assistance. CU h:l.'i
established good relationships with key go\emment and NGOs in the district. Therefore, it will be easy
for CU to Slart and implement the project "ith stakeholder support. CU has gained trust from its
partners, making it e:l.'iY to mobilise partners and to gain support.
Population
Phalombe District has six Traditional Authorities (TAs). 46 VDCs. and 445 >illages. Phalombc has a
population of 300,451 people. Table 5 pro>~des a breakdown of thc population and Table 6 illustrates
positive HIV tests and AIDS cases from 1998-2005.

Factors in the communitv Ihat led to choice of community mobi lisation and behaviour change
approaches;
> Inadequate knowledge of malaria as a disease. its pTe>emion and control practices. There is much
   misconception of the causes of malaria and disease epidemioloaY. and a lack of awareness
   regarding the new drug for malaria treatment. Tne communities arc also not aware of the mortality
   and morbidity lc"els that malaria causes and how it impacts on thei r social and econom ic lives.
    However. it can be prevented and treated. Local leaders are instrumental in guiding the
   communities in both de>'dopment and health issues. [nvol ...ing them will not only sustain the
    interventions. it will also stimulate participation of all members of the communities. The
    in>'o!>'ement of school going children "ill educatC fulUrc generations to reduce the kno"ledge gap
   and fight malaria. [)e>" eloping their own community strategy on malaria will enhance ownership
    and intcrest as well as participation in the project both now and in the future. The com:et use of
    ITNs and treatment will also ensure proper prevention of malaria.
)- Beliefs in traditional medicine for treatment of malaria. The belief in traditional medicines and
    witchcraft causes delays in sedinlii: conventional medical treatment oftcn resulting in mortality. The
    communities will be educated on the signs and symptoms of malaria and treaunenL
~ Poor health seeking behaviour. Most communities visit health serviees too late and proclice drug
    administration at home. This leads to drug abuse and drug resistance problems.
» Pregnanl women not accessing IPT. Communities are still not aware of the dangers of contracting
    malaria for pregnant women and its efTects. Communities will be in\'olved to encourage pregnant
    women to attend a heal th faci lity to have IPT. e>cn if they atlend antenatal clinics run by TBAs.
    Moreover. communities will be empowered to ensure that pregnant women enrol for antenatal
    clinics early enough to avoid complications related to malaria infections.
Roles and Responsibilities of Local Partners
The key local partners are the Phalombe DHO and the Holy Family llospital under CHAM. CV's main
role will be facilitating the planning. implementation, monitoring, evaluation and reporting of the
project. CV ""ill employ a small number of well-qualified and experienced personnel to work with the
above-mentioned key partners and other collaborators such as the MoH, the NMCP, the PMI Team
(USA ID and CDC). CU ""ill ensure that the plans developed are reasonable and appropriate to help the
achievement of the project objectives and will follow up implementation to assure high standards. In
addition. CV will support the local partners in their efforts to develop their capacity to provide effective
services to the district population. Finally, CV will cnsure that cash flows are prepared to allow smooth
implementation of plans and all project resources are effcctively utilised and accounted for.

The Phalombe DHO and the Holy Fami]y Hospital will be the main implemcnters of the project with
support from CU. Their key responsibilities will be around diagnosis and treatment of malaria,
administration of appropriate drug n:gimes, and participating in the monitoring of malaria prevalence
and efTecth'eness of services provided by their institutions and by the project. Health Surveillance
Assistants from the DHO will be thc key implementers of community education and awareness raising
including campaigns and field days. The Holy Family Hospital ""ill administer IPT.

MoHlNMCP along with the PMI Team (USA ID and CDC) will provide leadership on all PMI malaria
control activities. They will take the lead to determine research to be conducted, coordinate all malaria
control programs and help mobilise resources for malaria control. The MoHINMCP will disseminate
malaria control research. updates and best practices. CJFBOs will participate in implementing MoH
developed malaria control programmes. Thcir activities are mostly community based and tend to
provide pc<lple level impact programmes, and they help to fill the hwnan resouree gap at community
level. USAID Malawi has substantial involvement in: the approval of key personnel. work plans and
programme modifications; appro,"al of monitoring and evaluation plans and participating in monitoring
progress towards achieving expe<:led results and outcomes; and, in the concurrence with the selection
of sub awards. The PMI Team will collaborate with the NMCP and assist with thc building of local
capacity to address malaria and promote sustainability of host country efforts. ]n order to move towards
sustainabi lity of efforts to control malaria. there is need for local ownership of the programme. VllCs
could mobilise communities: disseminate IEC messages; acquire. store and distribute !TNs: and
promote re-treatment of nets where long lasting nets are not available. The committees "i]] participate
in supervision of volunteers and monitoring and evaluation of their local programs.

As outlined earlier. key stakeholders (including the MoU, CHAM, CBOs) have identified the existing
gaps and limitations in malaria prevention and trcauncnt in Phalombe District, and support this CU
project proposal. Agreed and identified roles and responsibilities arc Olulincd in Table 7. Community
Home Based Care (HBC) groups provide chronically ill patients with comprehensive care from home
and community to institutional scrvices in order to ensure that their diverse needs and those of falmlies
are met. Key interventions include: medical care; basic nursing. psychosocial iIIld palliative care:
transfer of skills 10 the primary care giver; monitoring of the patient in ARV and TB trcatment; and
discharge planning and referral to appropriate services. So far, HBC groups in the district havc focused
main ly on HIV and AIDS care and support. Therefore, the project will build the capacity of HBC
groups to include malaria diagnosis and treaunent within their roles and responsibilities. For example,
the project will take advantage of the existing drug box to enhance malaria case management. Drug kits
will be strengthened or established to ensure availability of malaria control supplies within the
communities.
