Stepping into 2022

by | Jan 18, 2022

By Jenny Andrews, Executive Director, Malaria Partners International 

In times like this, I am inspired by the wisdom of Martin Luther King who famously said, “You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step”. 

Here at Malaria Partners International, that is just what we are doing, and we invite you to take those first steps of 2022 with us. Here is a quick preview of what those steps look like: 

  • In January 2022, we will formally launch our third African Affiliate, Malaria Partners West Africa (MPWA) which will serve ten countries from its headquarters in The Gambia. Led by Rotarian, Dr. Emma Bruce, MPWA will be implementing malaria elimination programs in each of the ten West African countries in Rotary District 9101. 

  • Meanwhile, our Malaria Partners Zambia Affiliate will be launching Year Two of Partners for a Malaria-Free Zambia, a $6 million program to train, equip and sustain 2,500 Community Health Workers to test and treat malaria. 

  • Likewise, our Malaria Partners Uganda Affiliate is kicking off its new strategic plan focusing on advocacy for malaria elimination and a myriad of small grant projects throughout the country. 

It is only through the support of generous people like you that we make strides – every day – toward our vision of a malaria-free world. We sincerely thank you for all you do to help make this vision a reality.  

In 2020 alone, over 600,000 people died from malaria, and 93% of those deaths were in Sub-Saharan Africa. Of those, the vast majority were children under the age of five and pregnant women. 

Please look around on our website to learn more about our work and how you can get involved. Thank you and best wishes for a happy, healthy, and purposeful 2022!
