The US Presidents Malaria Initiative (PMI) Impact Malaria project is PMI's flagship global malaria service delivery project, helping to improve the quality and increase the delivery of malaria diagnosis and treatment services in up to 27 countries around the world. PMI Impact Malaria is a USAID contract hosted and led by PSI as the prime contractor.

PMI Impact Malaria works with national malaria control programs to help tackle these challenges by:
  • Closing the gaps in malaria service delivery to get the right medicine, with the correct diagnosis, to patients in need, in the timeliest manner.
  • Unlocking the potential of key drug-based approaches, by helping countries to introduce, implement, and scale-up proven innovations to move countries forward in their elimination efforts, according to each country's unique malaria situation.
  • Strengthening malaria health systems and the use of data for decision-making to link operational research and country-led dialogue with global technical leadership for the means of accelerating service delivery improvements and advancing key learnings.

The PMI Impact Malaria (IM) team is a results-focused, multi-disciplined and multi- cultured team, based out of Washington DC, working through PSI country offices as well as through our partners Jhpiego, MCDI and UCSF.

The PMI Impact Malaria (IM) project under Population Services International (PSI) seeks a temporary Compliance Officer to support a multi-country, multi-million-dollar USAID malaria service delivery program to support service delivery across public, private and community channels, and shape the future of malaria case management in at least 17 countries.
