Malaria is a preventable and all-too-often deadly disease spread by the anopheles mosquito. The Imagine No Malaria program aims to reduce the number of deaths and illnesses caused by malaria in African communities through comprehensive, community-based malaria programs and quality health services through United Methodist-affiliated health centers.

To achieve these goals, the Imagine No Malaria program focuses on education about malaria, prevention using insecticide treated nets, diagnosis and treatment and health facility revitalization.

Imagine No Malaria programs leverage health systems, partnerships and resources by working with United Methodist annual conferences to develop and build the capacity of local health departments in episcopal areas across Africa. Health departments can then develop strategic plans with context appropriate, integrated solutions to end malaria and other preventable diseases. These United Methodist health departments are awarded grants to implement their local projects and activities in line with the INM program goal and objectives.
