  3. 3. Epidemiological Profile –Malaria Burden <ul><li>Malaria is a major public health problem in Ethiopia </li></ul><ul><li>Consist ~4% of all cases in Africa </li></ul><ul><li>75% of the land is malarious (altitude < 2000 m), </li></ul><ul><li>>50 million (68%) of the population at risk </li></ul><ul><li>Malaria was the leading cause of OPD visits, health facility admissions, and inpatient deaths, accounting for 12% of reported OPD visits and nearly 10% of admissions( 2008/2009) </li></ul>
  4. 4. Malaria Burden
  5. 5. Ep.cal Profile <ul><li>Transmission is unstable and seasonal </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Divers Eco-climate condition /altitude and climate are determinant factor </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Seasonal transmission occurs in highland fringe areas (1500-2500m) affected by frequent epidemic </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Relatively longer transmission duration in lowland areas, river basins and valleys area (below 1500m) . </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. Ep.cal Profile Cont … <ul><li>Major transmission season occurs in the period September - December following June -Sept rains </li></ul><ul><li>Minor transmission season occurs in April – May following the February – March rains. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Coincide with major planting and harvesting season for farmers - aggravate economic loss </li></ul></ul>

  10. 10. Intervention Polices and Strategies <ul><li>History of Malaria control in Ethiopia </li></ul><ul><li>1959 - Malaria Eradication Service established with funding support by USAID along with Zimbabwe and South Africa </li></ul><ul><ul><li>One year after major malaria epidemic </li></ul></ul><ul><li>1976 - The country shifted from an ‘eradication’ program to a ‘control’ program known as the National Organization for the Control of Malaria and Other Vector-Borne Diseases. </li></ul><ul><li>1993 – Malaria control was integrated into general health system and decentralized </li></ul>
