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. [...]
