Fatuma Sultan Koletima is a 30-year-old woman who lives in a small rural village in Cape Mount County. She is just one of many who have benefited from PMI's support in Liberia. During the last rainy season, Fatuma's children experienced many episodes of malaria and, despite visits to the traditional healer and self-medication with chloroquine, she and her children did not get well. Finally, Fatuma visited a health facility and was given ACTs that cured her children. And, because she was pregnant, Fatuma received a dose of sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine and a new long-lasting ITN, which was provided by PMI. Fatuma reported that her family has been malaria-free, and she is looking forward to a smooth and healthy pregnancy.
