Work with Ministry of Health and partners to develop capacity and create sustainable systems to ensure ongoing access to malaria diagnosis and treatment nationwide.
Assist the Ministry of Health and partners in the development of policies and strategic plans to effectively deliver malaria diagnosis and treatment.
