Cross-border Malaria Project

Elimination 8 is a partnership of eight countries in Southern Africa that are collaborating to achieve the elimination of malaria transmission in continental sub-Saharan Africa by the year 2030. The project is employing a multi-pronged attack on cross-border infection and the spread of malaria across the whole of Southern Africa.

A consortium of partners led by ADPP as part of the Elimination 8 project is working towards the elimination of malaria on both sides of the Angola / Namibia border. Closely coordinated massive testing, treating and tracking in border areas has proved highly successful. 46,918 people in Cuando Cubango and Cunene were tested in 2019. All were offered first line treatment for simple cases of malaria, or were referred to health service providers for treatment of more complicated cases 

ADPP’s Project Management Unit coordinated the activities of ADPP Angola, The Mentor Initiative and the Council of Christian Churches with JC Flowers in Angola, and DAPP Namibia and the Anglican AIDS Program in Namibia. Eight fixed malaria testing posts were established in border areas of Kuando Kubango and Cunene in Angola, and in northern Namibia, while mobile posts and surveillance teams were used to reach remote villages and populations. Nurses, community health workers, case management supervisors, field supervisors, environmental health officers, drivers, office workers and hundreds of volunteers combined forces to provide testing, treating and tracking of malaria cases on a massive scale.
