UN Agencies Welcome New US Initiative to Fight Malaria (3)

Hi everybody,

As per the "Statement by USAID Administrator Andrew Natsios on
the President's Initiative on Malaria", the funds will be used
for the following:

[...] "This initiative will include the purchase of the key sup-
plies needed to expand both prevention and treatment programs,
including Artemisinin Combination Therapies (ACTs), the most ef-
fective drug to combat malaria, and long-lasting insecticide
treated bed nets. In addition, the U.S. will help developing
countries' national malaria programs conduct indoor residual
spraying with insecticides, implement training programs, and im-
prove logistics. As the President stated, the program will focus
on outcomes and impact with an ultimate goal of reducing malaria
mortality rates in these countries by 50 percent. [...]


Best regards and have a good week end all,
