Private Sector and PMI Join Forces, Strengthen Angola’’s Capacity to Control Mosquitoes

Feb 15, 2010 | GBCHealth

Top global companies and the President’s Malaria Initiative are working with the Government of Angola on an intensive technical training program to arm the country’s malaria fighters with state-of-the-art mosquito surveillance and vector control techniques.

By aiding the sharing of these comprehensive technical skills and best practices in mosquito monitoring and evaluation, as well as providing training on how to use the latest malaria control products, the private sector will help Angola, which reported more than 3.1 million cases of malaria in 2009, move more quickly toward reducing the disease’s deadly impact.
