Overview

CHAI began working in Mesoamerica and Hispaniola in 2014, and is today supporting the governments of Panama, Honduras, Guatemala, Belize, Haiti, and the Dominican Republic to work toward the goal of malaria elimination.

In Panama, Guatemala, and Honduras, we are supporting training and deployment of community health workers to better detect, diagnose, and treat malaria cases in high-burden communities. We have helped introduce rapid diagnosis testing to reduce disease transmission as well as targeted interventions such as Indoor Residual Spraying (IRS) and electronic surveillance systems. In Guatemala, we have developed a partnership with the sugar cane association (ASAZGUA) to open points of malaria care on sugar plantations, training health workers, and increasing malaria awareness among seasonal workers.

In Haiti we are working with the government to end malaria across the country by 2025, including developing a national strategic plan for community case management and helping the country transition to an electronic reporting system for malaria cases.
