Webinar Held on Best Practices in Communication for Community-Based Malaria Programs

Monday, September 20, 2010

C-Change and MCHIP facilitated a webinar to showcase best practices by Malaria Communities Program (MCP) grantees HealthPartners Uganda and Concern Universal Malawi on September 13, 2010. MCP is a program of the President's Malaria Initiative (PMI). PMI has awarded grants worth $30 million to 20 organizations to support national malaria prevention and treatment efforts.

Best Practices in Communication for Community-Based Malaria Prevention slideMCP supports and strengthens the capacity of African communities and indigenous organizations to combat malaria. Every MCP grantee implements social and behavioral change communication (SBCC) programming at the community and household levels. In 12 countries, MCP grantees (with technical assistance from C-Change and others) are achieving measurable results and serve as important local allies against malaria.

Despite this progress, limited opportunities prevent MCP grantees from interacting with each other and global stakeholders and showcasing their work. To promote cross-fertilization of promising approaches and methodologies, MCHIP and C-Change organized this webinar. The following questions guided the presentations:

  1. How is your program linked to a national strategy and how is it scalable?
  2. What are the key barriers to achieving positive malaria prevention and care behaviors and how are you using data to address those barriers?
  3. How are your interventions addressing these barriers?

 The PowerPoint presentations from the webinar are available on Slideshare:
