Bending the Curve
TIPTOP will bend the curve—reaching the hardest to reach and drastically reducing missed opportunities for eligible pregnant women to receive SP.
TIPTOP will apply an innovative approach, complementary to antenatal care services: introducing community-level distribution of QA SP and driving market change with introduction of QA SP.
Malaria in Pregnancy (MiP)
What is the danger of malaria in pregnancy?
Each year MiP is responsible for:
20% of stillbirths in sub-Saharan Africa
100,000 newborn deaths globally
10,000 maternal deaths globally
In malaria-endemic areas, 50 million women will become pregnant each year.
These women are highly susceptible to the consequences of malaria, which lead to:
Increased maternal death
Severe maternal anemia
It provides significant benefit by reducing the incidence of:
Severe maternal anemia: 38%
Low birthweight: 29%
Infant death: 31%
An innovative, community-based approach that aims to dramatically increase the number of pregnant women in malaria-affected countries in sub-Saharan Africa receiving life-saving antimalarial treatment.
