The Malaria Prevention Sensitization Campaign

By Article by Dr. Emma Bruce, Executive Director, Malaria Partners West Africa

 

 

Malaria Partners West Africa (MPWA) followed up its first annual general meeting at the Rotary District 9101 Conference and Assembly in late March with the submission of a Small Grant proposal to MPI on behalf of the Rotary Malaria Committee in Sierra Leone, the vetting of a Small Grant proposal from Rotarians in Burkina Faso, participation in World Malaria Day activities, and the development of proposals to support the SeneGambia ITN distribution campaign, beginning mid-May.  The Outreach Program to Mothers and Pregnant Women at clinics and hospitals in the Gambia, long-delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic, was launched in partnership with Catholic Relief Services (CRS), the National Malaria Control Program (NMCP), and the host hospital/clinic facilities (see photos to the right).

 

World Malaria Day activities were held on April 25th in each of the ten Rotary D9101 countries.  The Small Grant project in Sierra Leone included a supporting partnership with NMCP in that celebration.

 

On May 8th, MPWA’s Executive Director, Dr. Emma Bruce, attended the formal launch of the SeneGambia ITN distribution campaign at the Senegalese border town of Karang (see photo).

MPWA will be assisting the distribution campaign in The Gambia with radio messages in six languages.
