Mapping Private Sector Malaria Investments In Nigeria
As the National Malaria Elimination Programme of Nigeria (NMEP) accelerates its goal towards pre-elimination of malaria by 2020, there is an unprecedented opportunity to mobilize corporate investments to prevent countless morbidities and deaths from malaria.
Companies have invested financial, human and product capital in Nigeria’s malaria control efforts, yet it has been difficult to ascertain at a macro level, the level of investments, location of these investments and amount invested.
The Corporate Alliance on Malaria in Africa (CAMA) and the Private Sector Health Alliance of Nigeria (PHN) are seeking information from the corporate sector to map where business are investing in
malaria and what impact these investments are having in order to better manage resources, avoid duplication and ultimately increase impact on the ground. Specifically, this project aims to:
Identify the largest gaps in corporate investment in malaria by elevating priority states that are under served by the corporate sector’s interventions.
Highlight obvious duplication or over resourced areas at a state and district level Identify opportunities for realignment where corporates can shift existing investments to high priority strategic areas and/or states that will have more impact and,
Elevate opportunities for partnerships and new investments among the private sector as well as between private and public sector.
This report showcases the results of an initial survey undertaken by CAMA and PHN with the objective to establish a baseline understanding of the characteristics of malaria-related investments made
by the private sector. Importantly, we wanted to understand how and where companies are currently contributing and opportunities to accelerate progress in the coming years.
