Tanzania and the U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) teamed up to fight malaria when the initiative first launched in three African countries in 2006. Tanzania ranks among the ten highest malaria burden countries in sub-Saharan Africa, with the entire population (both the Mainland and Zanzibar) at risk of infection from the disease. Through the scale-up of malaria prevention and treatment interventions in partnership with PMI, Tanzania demonstrated dramatic progress between 2005 and 2015. Today Tanzania is focused on malaria control while the Zanzibar region is actively working toward malaria elimination.
