    • Description:
      The U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) is a U.S. Government initiative established in 2005 to sharply decrease malaria deaths by scaling up proven interventions. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) jointly implement this initiative led by the U.S. Global Malaria Coordinator. PMI works in 19 sub-Saharan Africa countries, where malaria exacts its greatest toll, and the Greater Mekong Subregion, where resistance to the most effective malaria treatment drugs has already appeared. In each PMI country/region, two PMI resident advisors (one each from CDC and USAID), supported by other in-country staff and teams at CDC and USAID headquarters, work with the host country government to support implementation of the national malaria control program (NMCP) plans. PMI teams develop annual malaria operational plans; participate in national malaria partner coordination mechanisms; and assist in the design, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation of program activities. Because of PMI and its global partners, more people than ever have access to life-saving malaria interventions. The World Health Organization (WHO) 2013 World Malaria Report documents that global intervention scale-up was associated with more than 3.3 million lives saved from 2000 through 2012.
