The UK Department for International Development (DFID) has recently announced its funding of a 50 million pound initiative to support the Nigerian National Malaria Programme. The programme will be led by the Malaria Consortium and you can read the details here and will run from 2008 to 2012. One of the aims is to ensure wider availability and access to effective preventive interventions and treatment, a very important point as I reflect on my journeys around Nigeria and the visible lack of insecticide impregnated bed nets in most of the places I went to, rural or urban. Kudos to the Malaria Consortium for publishing the proposed outputs for the project ensuring transparency and accountability. We will be watching for progress.

The PATHS I project to strengthen health systems in six Nigerian states has some very useful information and documents on its website. The monitoring report also makes for interesting reading. Its good that DFID is making these docments accessible
