The activities conducted by the sub-recipents of this RAIE2 grant will include:

- Conduct health education sessions in the community to promote awareness of malaria and to promote malaria services by VHWs.
- Conduct field monitoring visits by the mobile field teams to monitor the malaria services by the VHWs and to provide supportive supervisions and on-site trainings.
- Vector control: LLINs distribution to static populations from hard to reach and unmet area, and to migrant/mobile populations.
- Referral services for severe malaria cases to hospitals.
- Advocacy meetings with relevant stakeholders such as authorities from state, regional and township level, related departments and other partners.
