    PSI and its local affiliates manage malaria control programs in 32 countries and are world leaders in malaria control implementation delivering 42 million treated mosquito nets and almost 19 million treatments for confirmed malaria cases in 2016.  More specifically, PSI supports national Ministries of Health to deliver improved malaria case management through public sector channels in partnership with the global fund, and is working with a number of other donors to harness the private sector to deliver quality assured diagnosis and treatment of fever.  Complimenting these service delivery programs with improved integrated reporting across all channels using DHIS II, today PSI supports countries that need it, to deliver a holistic malaria control program.
