External evaluation of the national malaria control programme : Myanmar, 30 July - 9 August 2012
AbstractDescription: The programme review is a mechanism to assess overall programme achievements and performance as well as to identify gaps. It provides an opportunity to propose strategic directions in order to improve the programme performance. The Ministry of Health, Republic of the Union of Myanmar, in collaboration with WHO, conducted the external evaluation of the malaria control programme during 30 July-9 August 2012. The review team noted a rapid increase in key intervention coverage spanning a large part of the country and improving timely service delivery at the village level over the past six years. The review team also observed a strong partnership as well as potential increase of funding for malaria control. Inadequate human resources for malaria control, overlapping of implementing areas of multiple partners, and emergence of artemisinin resistance are key challenges.
