Over the years, PSI has continued its presence and expanded operations to include a comprehensive hygiene, sanitation and safe water program.
In 2009, PSI started a Home Management of Malaria (HMM) program for children under five years old. Since then, HMM has evolved into a broader Integrated Community Case Management (ICCM) program with the addition of pneumonia, diarrhea and acute malnutrition interventions.
