ALMA is supporting the Sierra Leone’s Ministry of Health & Sanitation in the implementation of the country’s malaria and Reproductive Maternal Newborn Child and Adolescent Health (RMNCAH) scorecard management tools for accountability and action. ALMA is also providing technical assistance to the NMCP and other partners implementing an End Malaria Council.
Sierra Leone’s National Malaria Control Programme (NMCP) developed the malaria scorecard management tool for accountability and action in 2016 with support from ALMA and partners. Since the rollout, ALMA has supported the Ministry of Health & Sanitation in the strengthening of the scorecard management tool and further decentralized the use of the tool at the district level.
Sierra Leone’s RMNCAH scorecard management tool for action and accountability was first developed by the Ministry of Health & Sanitation in 2013 in collaboration with ALMA and partners.
Under the national “Zero Malaria Starts with Me” campaign, the NMCP is working to implement a multisectoral End Malaria Council. This Council will be charged with promoting the campaign by mainstreaming responsibility for malaria across all sectors, public and private, and mobilising financial and in-kind resources to support the national malaria strategic plan.
