The Malaria Control Booster Project (MCBP) is part of Federal Government of Nigeria efforts to improve the health situation blighted by preventable and treatable diseases. It contains two main components: i) strengthening the capacity of the Federal Government to provide malaria control leadership and coordination over the medium and long-term; and ii) strengthening the health system to improve delivery of an integrated package of interventions in the target states. (The World Bank, 2010) The project has lasted for over 8 years, from 2007 to 2015. During these 8 years, a number of interventions have been executed to increase the quality and utilization of health services for malaria prevention and treatment. This research will mainly focus on two interventions---Community-Directed Interventions (CDIs) and Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs). The paper will include a background introduction, literature reviews, a detailed description of the two interventions, relevant data, a summary of the interview with the program coordinator, M Abul Kalam Azad, and a discussion on whether CDI and PMV interventions contributed to controlling malaria in Nigeria by analyzing the data collected from the project.
