Short description of the organization and its work to control and eliminate NTDs
Malaria Consortium is one of the world’s leading specialist non-profit organisations. Our mission is to improve lives of all, especially the poorest and marginalised in Africa and Asia through sustainable, evidence-based programmes that combat targeted diseases. We integrate childhood illnesses (such as pneumonia, diarrhoea and malnutrition), malaria prevention, control, treatment and surveillance, with neglected tropical disease management, with the ultimate goal of achieving cost-effective solutions.
Our current work focuses on preventive treatment, vector control, case management and health system effectiveness and efficiency. Through these core areas of work and expertise, we tackle specific aspects of NTD control such as surveillance, prevention (including vector control), treatment, morbidity management and community engagement.
Apart from working with 5 of the London Declaration NTDs, Malaria Consortium also works to fight against Dengue, Buruli ulcer, Podoconiosis, and Tungiasis.
