Fighting Malaria with Skilled Leadership

Since 2013, the LMG Project has provided technical assistance to the National Malaria Control Programs (NMCPs) in Burundi, Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, Guinea, Lao PDR, Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Togo, through the indispensable work and expertise of Senior Technical Advisors.

These advisors, who are directly embedded within the NMCP, served as technical experts as well as day-to-day coaches to NMCP staff, in an effort to sustainably build capacity, improve grant management and partner coordination, and ultimately strengthen the role of the NMCP as the leader of national malaria control efforts.

This success story compendium highlights how the work of our advisors and the project has directly and indirectly impacted individuals, communities, and countries in the fight against malaria. Whether reinforcing leadership skills, facilitating the engagement of partners in national-level coordination, mentoring, strengthening training approaches, or rationalizing malaria resources, over the course of their time in the field, they have acquired the trust and respect of their colleagues at the NMCP and of the communities they work in, and these stories are just some examples of these achievements.
