Child Aid Ehlanzeni

The Project was established in November 2016 to facilitate Malaria Elimination in Mpumalanga Province of South Africa. The project service type is Installation and Implementation of Health Service Posts for Malaria Diagnosis, Treatment and Surveillance for Mobile and Underserved Populations in Ehlanzeni border District of South Africa. The project Focuses on Migrants and Mobile Populations (MMPs), given the risk of infection importation to and from countries with varying risk of transmission. MMPs, particularly the undocumented, often face complex obstacles in accessing essential health care and malaria-control services. This in turn results in undetected and untreated malaria and increases their vulnerability to malaria-related morbidity and mortality. Resident populations, especially those that travel between areas of different transmission risk, may import malaria into receptive areas. To ensure that importation of the Malaria parasite is controlled, the project has a basic Malaria post to offer mobile service to the communities and a Malaria Plus post which will be stationed close to/at the border to offer Malaria health service to the MMPs. Surveillance teams will be two to offer surveillance service to ensure that total elimination is achieved within the country.
