Led by USAID and implemented by Abt Associates, the  U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) Africa Indoor Residual Spraying (AIRS) Project protects millions of people in Africa from malaria by spraying insecticide on the walls, ceilings, and other indoor resting places of mosquitoes that transmit malaria. The PMI AIRS Project implements indoor residual spraying (IRS) campaigns in 11 countries in Africa. These campaigns focus on operations, environmental compliance, monitoring and evaluation, entomological monitoring, and information, education and communication.

The aim of this publication is to demonstrate the potential of mobile-based technology (mHealth) to improve the quality and efficiency of public health programs, in particular indoor residual spraying (IRS) programs. To do so, it describes mHealth innovations implemented by the PMI AIRS Project. Read more about Abt's work in malaria prevention and control
