According to the evaluators, PMI has been so successful that the natural next step is to expand its financial resources and geographic reach to sustain and build on this progress. The results it has achieved and the growing financial constraints other malaria partners will face in the years ahead, point to a clear need for a continued and expanded PMI.

 

PMI’s strategy is also in line with the new roadmap released through the USAID Child Survival Call to Action, a country-led approach to ending preventable child deaths. Malaria is one of the five health conditions globally responsible for 50 percent of all mortality under age 5, and the Call to Action describes the need to save lives by scaling up known solutions in high-burden areas. To heed this call, PMI will require continued commitment and support.
