Global Call to Action to increase national coverage with Intermittent Preventive Treatment of Malaria in Pregnancy
Raise your voice and support the Call to Action.
Intermittent Preventive Treatment against malaria in pregnancy(IPTp) is a highly cost effective intervention with the potential to save many maternal and neonatal lives. Yet its coverage is low. We require immediate action for dramatic scale-up of coverage in sub-Saharan Africa. While some obstacles to IPTp uptake relate to health-systems issues, many of the barriers, common across countries, could be overcome relatively easily and rapidly.
