Breakthrough ACTION Kenya
Breakthrough ACTION Kenya, President’s Malaria Funded project flagship social and behavior change (SBC) project is working at the national level and in the eight PMI priority counties (Bungoma, Busia, Homa Bay, Kakamega, Kisumu, Migori, Siaya and Vihiga counties). At the national level, Breakthrough ACTION Kenya provides social and behaviour change direct technical assistance and capacity building in SBC practice and coordination. Project activities fall into three intermediate results:
IR1: Improved uptake of key malaria behaviors in communities by effectively targeting relevant behavioral determinants through community-level programming
IR2: Improved health worker behaviors supportive of effective malaria service delivery
IR3: Improved capacity of Division of National Malaria Programme (DNMP), Health Promotion Unit (HPU), and other partners to coordinate, design, develop, disseminate, implement, monitor, and evaluate effective SBC at national and sub-national levels
Of note is the upcoming Malaria Behaviour Survey which is an in depth population level household survey that examines the key psycho-social influences on malaria behaviours which will allow the DNMP to be able to craft highly targeted SBC interventions that are most likely to influence individual and community malaria related behaviours.
PMI Measure Malaria
PMI Measure Malaria (PMM) is a USAID funded project that provides technical support to strengthen country-level capacity to collect, analyze, and use routine malaria data for malaria programming. PMM also provides support for monitoring and evaluation of the implementation of the national malaria strategic plan. This support is provided through partnership with the Division of National Malaria Program and other Ministry of Health departments at the national level; and in eight county departments of health in the lake endemic zone, namely Kisumu, Migori, Siaya, Homa Bay, Busia, Bungoma, Kakamega and Vihiga.
Health Policy Plus (HP+)
Health Policy Plus (HP+) is a USAID-funded project (2015–2022) whose main objective is to strengthen global, national, and subnational capacities to advance health priorities through supporting interventions in policy, advocacy, financing, and governance. HP+ aims to improve the enabling environment for equitable and sustainable health services, supplies, and delivery systems through policy development and implementation, by strengthening the capacity of local partners.
To improve Kenya’s response to malaria, HP+ supports the Division of National Malaria Programme (DNMP) and the eight lake endemic counties of Bungoma, Busia, Homa Bay, Kakamega, Kisumu, Migori, Siaya, and Vihiga to secure sustainable financing of malaria control and elimination programmes. This is done through domestic resource mobilization and capacity strengthening in planning, budgeting, and utilization of resources for malaria.
