  • Our mining company client became concerned that too many employees and their dependents at the low altitude swampy sites of Kiunga and Bige were losing work days to malaria.
  • This was putting strain on occupational health facilities, and the client was concerned that staff were not receiving adequate prevention and treatment advice/services.
  • Montrose was contracted to assess staff malaria knowledge, prevention precautions and treatment regimens, as well as the quality of company health facilities, and malaria control policy and management.


  • A Montrose team of a senior experts carried out the following:
    • Desk review of existing company malaria policy and proposed ‘lost time malaria frequency rate’ calculations.
    • Field visits including assessments of hospitals, clinics, residential sites, compounds and company facilities, vector control programmes, and interviews with senior occupational health and external relations staff, and other stakeholders.
    • A comprehensive report on the findings with recommendations, including costings and a proposed work plan for future management, policy and quality improvements.


  • Our experts’ input ensured international best practice for malaria control was being applied and maximum health impact could be achieved for employees and local communities.
