WHAT IS THE PSSMC?
The Partnership for Social Sciences in Malaria Control (PSSMC) is an international alliance of individuals representing specific skills and expertise within specified institutions. The purpose of the Partnership is to improve collaborative efforts to maximise the potential contribution that social science can and should be making to research and programmatic development in malaria control in sub-Saharan Africa.

WHO IS INVOLVED WITH THE PSSMC?
Currently, the steering committee is a core group of individuals from the following institutions:
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC); London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM); University of Nairobi; Centre d'Appui a la Recherche et la Formation (CAREF); The CHANGE Project; UNDP/World Bank/WHO/Special Programme for Tropical Diseases (TDR) (Units of Social, Economic and Behavioral Research; Intervention, Development and Implementation Research and Research Capacity Strengthening); Roll Back Malaria (RBM); Department for International Development (DFID); the Environmental Health Project (EHP); United States Agency for International Development (USAID) African Bureau; The Malaria Consortium; the Danish Bilharziasis Laboratory; Instituto Nacional de Saude, Mocambique; Ghana Health Services; and the Malaria Foundation International (MFI).

WHAT ARE THE DATABASES ALL ABOUT?
A lot of good work takes place in the world of behavioral science that is hard to keep up with, as much of it remains unpublished in meetings and technical reports. In addition, a great deal of the published data that is available is found in journals not regularly accessed by people working in malaria control. The PSSMC has generously organized many of these resources into these databases for your use. These databases will be updated approximately four times a year.
