Conducting a transition readiness assessment for malaria (TRA-M), develop a transition plan, and revise the National Malaria Program Strategic Plan
Location(s): United States
The Transition Readiness Assessment for Malaria (TRA-M) Guidance Manual and Tool is a resource for national malaria programs, and their donors and partners, to plan for the end of donor support and the transition to a fully domestically financed and managed malaria program. The transition from donor funding poses risks for malaria programs; changes in financing can destabilize program management and core activities, potentially threatening progress in the control, elimination, or prevention of reintroduction of malaria. However, transition also provides an opportunity to embed well-functioning systems into country health systems and to strengthen domestic capacity to finance and manage essential malaria services.
