6 Month Progress Update: Partners for A Malaria Free Zambia
December 14, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
Malaria is a formidable foe in Zambia, responsible for 50% of all infant deaths and 20% of all maternal deaths. On March 9th, 2021, Rotary International, World Vision, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation announced the launch of Rotary’s first Program of Scale, Partners for a Malaria-Free Zambia, a $6 million investment to train, equip and deploy 2500 Community Health Workers in Zambia. Partners for a Malaria-Free Zambia will strengthen the national health system by working closely with local health officials and health facility staff, scaling up Rotary’s successful work in the Copperbelt Province to reduce malaria by 90% in two additional Zambian provinces.
To date, this initiative has trained 973 community health workers serving a population of 486,500 In two districts. Join us for our final webinar of 2021 to hear more from our panel on the challenges, successes and learn what’s ahead for the next 6 months.
