A five year USAID funded project aimed at reducing malaria-related mortality in 10 districts of Mukono, Rakai and Masaka in (Central region); Hoima, Kibaale and Buliisa (Hoima region) and Soroti, Amuria, Katakwi and Kaberamaido (Teso region). CDFU managed the community mobilization activities for the project. The community mobilisation activities aimed at contributing to the project’s key intervention areas that included consistent use of Long Lasting Insecticidal Nets (LLINs), increasing Intermittent Presumptive Treatment in Pregnancy (IPTP) uptake among pregnant women, early testing and treatment of seeking behaviour within 24 hours from the onset of fever. CDFU worked with LCs, CSOs & FBOs; VHTs and later Health Assistants as entry points into the communities. The school programme implemented by CDFU was one of the successful components of the project – over 400,000 pupils in 610 schools were empowered as change agents of malaria prevention among their peers and community. In addition, CDFU supported establishment of talking compounds in 94 primary schools; 122 Health Assistants to conduct health education sessions; establishment of 244 listenership groups; 60 dialogue sessions at health facility level and distributed 1,098 integrated malaria job aids to health workers.
