Nepal malaria programme review
Other Titles7-16 June 2010
AbstractThe programme review is a mechanism to assess overall programme achievements and performance as well as identifying gaps. It provides an opportunity to propose strategic directions in order to improve the programme performance. The Ministry of Health and Population of Nepal in collaboration with WHO conducted the external evaluation of the malaria control programme during 7-16 June 2010. The review team observed significant progress in the malaria situation and the Malaria Control Programme. Several new tools were proven effective and produced an impact on disease trend. However, in spite of downward trends of the disease there are some programme weaknesses that should be addressed, especially the capacity of the national office (Epidemiology and Disease Control Division). This report elaborates the rationale of programme review, process and results of the review.
