A Word from the Director

Elaine Roman, TIPTOP Project Director
When TIPTOP started, we aimed to not only increase IPTp3 uptake without detracting from ANC utilization, but also to set the stage for continued scale-up of community IPTp (C-IPTp), when the project closes.  We achieved these aims in partnership with Ministries of Health, communities and collaborating partners.  Together, we also built a robust evidence base that will help guide continuation and scale-up across sub-Saharan Africa.   Although the TIPTOP project will come to an end April 30, Ministries of Health from DRC, Madagascar, Mozambique and Nigeria, in collaboration with partners, are now focusing on the expansion of C-IPTp.  These efforts are positioning these countries to reach more pregnant women, in the communities where they live, to prevent malaria in pregnancy and improve maternal and newborn health outcomes. It has been a true privilege to be part of this journey; thank you to everyone - Ministries of Health, community leaders, and supporting partners - who have contributed to the success of C-IPTp, positively impacting pregnant women to date and setting the stage to reach more pregnant women going forward.
Please enjoy our final issue of TIPTOPics which reflects on our five year C-IPTp journey with links to resources to support C-IPTp continuation.

Voices from the Field
“You cannot imagine how gratifying it is to know that we have someone in the community who takes care of us pregnant woman. The CHW not only advises on SP uptake but also facilitates our visits to the health facility through reference guides and constant reminders making my pregnancy something special.”
