The purpose of the Tanzania Malaria Surveillance and Monitoring (TMSM) Cooperative Agreement is to support the Government of Tanzania (GOT) to reduce the burden of malaria and to move towards the long-term goal of malaria elimination.
Under this Cooperative Agreement, USAID/Tanzania will fund
malaria surveillance, entomological monitoring, and drug efficacy monitoring.
Monitoring will include entomological monitoring, including insecticide resistance monitoring, and therapeutic efficacy monitoring.
With the improved epidemiological and entomological data gained during the implementation of this Cooperative Agreement, the Recipient and government partners will be able to refine responses to outbreaks and foci of transmission and adjust IRS and other vector control interventions in zones with differing transmission profiles.
The target populations of TMSM are pregnant women and children under five.
