CHALLENGES Volunteer involvement  Although our objective is to make malaria a cross- sector activity it is still challenging to involve volunteers from other sectors

Reporting, Monitoring, and Evaluation  Number of volunteers reporting on their malaria activities has improved but is still low

Perception of Volunteers  Many of our partners do not yet value the potential contribution of volunteers as they do not see volunteers as health professionals


OPPORTUNITIES Working to supplement nets available for Universal Coverage  Chris Hedrick is in the process of obtaining a sizable contribution of nets from Against Malaria to supplement the next distribution

PMI/Peace Corps Operational Research Protocol Development  Development of a series of simple, straightforward protocols that volunteers in Senegal, and eventually every PMI country, can follow, in collaboration with PMI country teams and headquarters

PECADOM  PECADOM plus pilot to be scaled up in the Saraya district, variation on the current model in a site in Kolda

Pre-Elimination in the North  PATH/MACEPA collaboration will be continued

Entomology  Potential work with PMI/Peace Corps on entomology support
