Call For Proposals To Implement Social Behaviour Change Communication (Sbcc) Strategic Interventions For Malaria Control

Malaria continues to represent a public health concern in Rwanda where more than a million of malaria cases are registered every year and all 30 districts are affected.
In the last five years, the Ministry of Health and the Rwanda Biomedical Centre have made significant progress in reducing malaria incidence from 409 per 1,000 population in FY2016/17 to 114 per 1,000 population in FY2020/21. These achievements have been possible with visionary leadership and accountability which was enhanced by implementation of high-impact preventive interventions such as Indoor Residual Spraying, LLINs distribution as well as community and local leaders’ engagement in malaria control with support from Implementing Partners and Local NGOs involved in SBCC Activities.
With the Rwanda National Strategic Plan (NSP) 2020-2024 as Rwanda free from malaria to contribute to the socio-economic development and considering its main goal to reduce malaria morbidity and mortality by at least 50% of the 2019 levels by 2024, a lot of efforts are still needed to reach our targets.

Referring to the NSP 2020-2024 Objectives 1 and 4, at least 85% of population at risk will be effectively protected with preventive interventions, and 85% of the population at risk will have correct and consistent practices and behaviors towards malaria control interventions by 2024.
In this line, the Rwanda Ministry of Health as the Principal Recipient (PR) through the Rwanda Biomedical Centre has been implementing Malaria SBCC Project in 4 Provinces and City of Kigali with support from Local NGOs from January 2020.
Following the recent successful malaria grant negotiation by the Rwanda MOH through the Rwanda Country Coordinating Mechanism of the Global Fund, there is a need to recruit 5 Local NGOs to continue implementing Malaria SBCC Project in Rwanda.
