Malaria Partners Zambia

We are pleased to announce the legal formation of Malaria Partners Zambia (MPZ). MPZ will pursue the Copperbelt Zambia malaria elimination project in cooperation with the Government of Zambia, PATH/MACEPA, World Vision, Malaria Partners International (Malaria Partners International) and Rotary Clubs committed to eradicating malaria. Rotary’s role in the project would be to generate funding to train the 3,500 Community Health Workers needed to complement the Government’s elimination efforts in the Copperbelt over the period 2018-2021.
