 Spearheading the Rotarian-led fight to End Malaria

by | Jun 16, 2021

Rotary International began its fight against polio in 1979. For decades, Rotarians across the world teamed up to focus on eradicating this deadly disease. Since 1988, cases of the polio have decreased over 99%.

With polio nearly eliminated, Rotarians are mobilizing for a new global challenge.

Malaria Partners International is spearheading the Rotarian-led fight to end malaria, a disease that has killed more people than any other diseases.

Partners for a Malaria Free Zambia is a partnership with World Vision, PATH MACEPA, and Bill & Melinda Gates foundation for a $6M project in Muchinga and Central Province to train and Equip 2,500 CHWs.

This partnership is a critical first step to eradicating malaria in Zambia, and will impact about 1.3 million Zambians. Join us in the fight against malaria.

In 2021, Malaria Partners International impacted more lives, countries, and people than ever before. Last year we supplied PPE, rapid diagnostics tests, and malaria prevention nets to Rotary-funded community health workers (CHWs) and supported malaria public education in Africa.

We have continued to expand our Small Grant program to both advise and financially support malaria projects initiated by Rotary clubs based in Uganda, Zimbabwe, Ghana, Tanzania, Liberia, Zambia, and Mali.

The plethora of articles relevant to malaria did not abate during the holiday season.  PubMed lists over 5,000 articles on the subject of malaria for the year of 2021. That averages to 400+ articles per month. We’ve combed through and have a selection of articles on Prevention, Diagnosis, Treatment, Campaigns, and Epidemiology.
