Cross-border Malaria Project

Elimination 8 is a partnership of eight countries in Southern Africa that are collaborating to achieve the elimination of malaria transmission in continental sub-Saharan Africa by the year 2030. The project is employing a multi-pronged attack on cross-border infection and the spread of malaria across the whole of Southern Africa.

ADPP Angola leads a consortium of NGOs implementing the project on the Angola-Namibia border. The first target for the project is the elimination of malaria in Namibia by 2020 while simultaneously laying the groundwork towards eliminating malaria in the southern part of Angola. This double objective is being achieved by testing, treating and tracking malaria cases among often hard to reach and mobile populations along the Angola-Namibia border.

ADPP’s Project Management Unit is leading the task by coordinating the activities of ADPP Angola, The Mentor Initiative and the Council of Christian Churches with JC Flowers in Angola, and DAPP Namibia and the Anglican AIDS Program in Namibia. Phase 1 of the project ran from 1 May 2017 until 30 August 2018. Fixed malaria testing posts were established in border areas of Kuando Kubango and Cunene in Angola, and in northern Namibia, while mobile posts and surveillance teams were used to reach remote villages and populations. Staff include nurses, community health workers, case management supervisors, field supervisors, environmental health officers, drivers and office workers. Volunteers form an important element of the project.

Results to date are impressive. Between January and September 2018, 169,507 people were tested in Kuando Kubango and Cunene, of which 22,527 cases were confirmed. All those who tested positive were offered treatment and the take up has been 99%. Tracking of cases is helping to identify the origin of infection and stop the further spread of malaria.
