Jhpiego’s Malaria Day Observances

Usually on 25 April we observe Africa Malaria Day. Now in 2008 people are taking part in WORLD MALARIA DAY, recognizing that the disease cuts across many continents and that people in all continents have a roll to play in controlling the disease. Jhpiego is observing this event throughout the month of April.

Jhpiego’s first activities consist of a series of updates on the organization’s malaria work. The first update features ACT roll out in Kenya. In the coming weeks Jhpiego will feature Nigeria, Tanzania and Angola. A link to the Kenya update is on Jhpiego’s home page

Jhpiego will be officially launching its Malaria Strategy Document at a BBL on the 29th of April 2008.

Malaria – a disease without borders – is a challenge Jhpiego is confronting across many countries and continents. Remember you all have a role to play.
