Malaria Partners Uganda

Malaria Partners Uganda is a nascent organization that anticipates to draw exceptional strength from rallying Rotary members in Uganda in partnership with its Global Chapters and a wide spectrum of strategic partnerships – including Uganda’s Ministry of Health and Parliamentary Forum on Malaria – to change the Malaria prevalence and incidence landscape towards elimination.

 

MPU’s Board of directors and Secretariat consists of a committed group of Rotary members and relevant professionals collectively championing viable solutions for a Malaria-free Uganda. We understand the impact of Malaria on sustainable livelihood and development; therefor we exist to leverage collective action and resources towards its elimination countrywide.
