This video highlights the impact of eight years of activities that aimed to improve malaria outcomes and strengthening the health system in Nigeria, as well as the exit strategy for the programme. The documentary focuses on the SuNMaP efforts in the states of Niger and Lagos.

SuNMaP was an £89 million programme funded by UK aid from the UK government that worked with the government and people of Nigeria to strengthen the national effort to control malaria. SunMaP worked with the Nigerian government’s National Malaria Elimination Programme (NMEP) to harmonise national policies and plans for malaria control. The programme was designed to leverage efforts and contributions towards the goal of eliminating malaria. The programme was rolled out in 10 states across Nigeria; Anambra, Niger, Kano, Katsina, Ogun, Lagos, Jigawa, Enugu, Kaduna and Yobe.
