This technical brief provides an overview of the capacity building work of the DFID-funded Support to National Malaria Programme in Nigeria (SuNMaP), implemented by Malaria Consortium, Health Partners International, and GRID Consulting. The programme is working at national level in support of the National Malaria Control Programme, and is operational in six states (Anambra, Kano, Lagos, Katsina, Niger and Ogun). The technical brief looks at how the programme mainstreamed an emphasis on capacity building throughout the entire programme, describes the capacity building approach developed by HPI, and sets out key capacity building objectives. These range from improved capacity for malaria-related policy development, planning and co-ordination at national, state and LGA levels, to the development of management capacity and leadership for co-ordinated and integrated malaria programming across the three tiers of the Nigerian health system.
