Rotarian Malaria Partners Uganda becomes Malaria Partners Uganda
Formerly known as Rotarian Malaria Partners Uganda, we are pleased to announce the legal formation of Malaria Partners Uganda (MPU).
MPU advocates for the elimination of malaria by defining impact on the country in order to trigger a mindset of change amongst Ugandans. This includes sharing their efforts to prevent, control and eliminate malaria and influencing legislation and policy towards the elimination of this diseases. Malaria currently takes the lives of 16 Ugandans every day, 10 of whom are children under the age of 5.
MPU continues to draw exceptional strength from rallying Rotarians in Uganda in partnership with its Global Chapter – Malaria Partners International, and a wide spectrum of strategic partnerships. This includes, Uganda’s Ministry of Health National Malaria Control Division (NMCD) and Uganda Parliamentary Forum on Malaria (UPFM), with the goal to to change the Malaria prevalence and incidence landscape towards elimination.
MPU Board of Directors and Secretariat consists of a committed group of Rotarians and relevant professionals collectively championing viable solutions for elimination of MALARIA with its PARTNERS in UGANDA.
