DEEP DIVE

Tracking progress against the PMI Insights Research Priorities

Objectives

This is an active Deep Dive and we welcome your contributions! If you are currently involved or planning research and / or programatic activities in line with the PMI Insights Research Priority areas,  please contact MESA (mesa@isglobal.org) or add your project to the database.

In 2021-2022, the U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) Insights Project, in collaboration with the Université Cheikh Anta Diop in Senegal (UCAD), carried out a broad stakeholder consultation to define a set of country-driven operational research (OR) and program evaluation (PE) priorities. The process resulted in a defined set of 33 OR and PE topics that span the thematic areas of prevention, chemoprevention, case management, surveillance, monitoring and evaluation, and cross cutting topics. 

Prevention (P): This area is inclusive of indoor residual spraying (IRS), insecticide-treated nets (ITNs), larval source management (LSM) and other prevention interventions such as the RTS,S AS01 malaria vaccine. 

Chemoprevention (C): This area is inclusive of intermittent preventive treatment in pregnancy (IPTp), perennial malaria chemoprevention (PMC), seasonal malaria chemoprevention (SMC), and drug administration (e.g., mass drug administration, reactive or targeted drug administration). 

Case management (CM): This area is inclusive of care seeking; diagnosis, treatment, and referral systems for malaria; and implementation approaches to deliver malaria case management across the different networks of care (public, private, and community), such as approaches to improve coverage, access, and quality of case management and referral systems

Surveillance, monitoring, and evaluation (SME): This area is inclusive of malaria epidemiological and entomological surveillance systems, monitoring and evaluation systems, and country health management information systems (HMIS). It encompasses systems’ capabilities to prepare and respond in a timely manner to disease outbreaks/cases and to detect and mitigate against threats such as drug and insecticide resistance. 

Crosscutting: This area includes topics that fall under more than one of the other four thematic areas (prevention, chemoprevention, case management, and SME).

To track progress against the 33 priorities, the PMI Insights project requested to track recent and ongoing OR and PE studies to assess which priorities have received recent investment and to better assess the gaps across the 33 priorities.

The  research areas in the histogram below depicts the 33 prioritized list of malaria OR and PE topics identified in the PMI Insights prioritisation process.
