The Corporate Alliance on Malaria in Africa (CAMA) has launched the End Malaria Project in Lagos, Ebonyi and Kaduna states, with support from Access Bank Plc.

The project, implemented alongside Hacey Health Initiative, featured an advocacy drive on malaria control in beneficiary communities, free malaria tests and treatments for residents, distribution and donation of 3,597 long-lasting insecticide-treated nets to households in 15 communities and 30 primary healthcare centres in the three states.

The Programme Director, Corporate Alliance On Malaria In Africa, Ochuko Keyamo-Onyige, while speaking on the project, said pregnant women and children under five with relatively lower levels of immunity are at high risk of getting the disease.

Keyamo revealed that the End Malaria Project remains an initiative to galvanise private sector resources and capabilities for sustained support towards reducing the incidence and prevalence of malaria in the most endemic region in Africa by 2023, starting in Nigeria.

Executive Director, HACEY Health Initiative, Rhoda Robinson, expressed delight over the rate at which pregnant women participated in the medical outreach.
