Meet Geneviève

“I used to stay up all night chasing away mosquitoes,” says Geneviève Ndagijimana, a 34-year-old mother from Burundi. “But it seemed like whatever I did, my children and I would get sick.”

Geneviève and her husband live in the suburbs of Bujumbura with their four children and two nephews. As far back as they can remember, they’ve lived in fear of getting malaria. They’ve lost many family members to the disease. “For many years, I suffered from countless cases of malaria, and I lost two children and my brother to the illness. That was a horrible period in my life.”

When she was pregnant with her fifth child, Geneviève was sure she would lose that baby, too. So, she went to a nearby health center to see if they could help.


PSI shapes mixed market systems, shifts policy and funding and strengthens global capacity to make it easier for people affected by malaria around the world to seek and receive quality malaria prevention, diagnosis, and treatment services. Working alongside in-country network members and our donors, PSI supports national malaria control and elimination programs (NMPs) across 27 countries.

The Four Pillars of our Work in

We work to deliver the next generation of malaria vector control.
We move quality malaria care closer to the consumer.
We create response-driven malaria surveillance systems.
We provide innovative chemoprevention interventions for malaria.


Here are some milestones we've achieved in the fight against malaria:

We've saved lives from malaria in

41 countries

We've distributed almost

427 million

insecticide-treated nets since 1997, about 20% of the global insecticide-treated nets distributed to date

Across our malaria interventions, we have provided

126 million years

of healthy life

We've supported government distribution of

14 million

courses of seasonal malaria chemoprevention

We've distributed more than

179 million

pre-packaged malaria treatments

We've distributed more than

80 million

malaria rapid diagnostic tests since 2003

Our Malaria-Fighting Solutions

We support national governments to implement the most efficient vector control strategy for their population to reach universal preventative coverage against malaria. We primarily support vector control activities related to increasing efficient coverage and proper use of insecticide-treated nets (ITNs). We use data and research to routinely analyze and improve our delivery of ITN interventions, with a particular focus on harnessing technology to inform channel innovation of ITN and novel vector control tools.

We work to ensure high-risk and hard-to-reach populations have access to diagnostic and treatment services. We support the training of providers to establish and follow clinical procedures to properly identify and address malaria cases. We ensure providers are equipped with the proper tools and medicines to effectively manage and treat malaria, with an increased focus on elevating integrated Community Case Management (iCCM) and private sector opportunities to strengthen malaria care.

We work to develop effective surveillance tools to capture malaria information in a timely, complete manner in readily accessible tracking systems that are developed with user-centered design. We ensure these tools are available to public and private sector decision makers to target preventative and management approaches across the malaria transmission spectrum.

 Pushing the envelope to unlock the potential of proven key drug-based prevention approaches.

We target two of the most vulnerable populations—pregnant women and children under 5—using seasonal malaria chemoprevention for children and intermittent preventative treatment for pregnant women.

The Future of Work

With overarching commitments to flexibility in our work, and greater wellbeing for our employees, we want to ensure PSI is positioned for success with a global and holistic view of talent. Under our new “work from (almost) anywhere,” or “WFAA” philosophy, we are making the necessary investments to be an employer of record in more than half of U.S. states, and consider the U.S. as one single labor market for salary purposes. Globally, we recognize the need to compete for talent everywhere; we maintain a talent center in Nairobi and a mini-hub in Abidjan. PSI also already works with our Dutch-based European partner, PSI Europe, and we’re creating a virtual talent center in the UK.
