Blogging “Pamodzi” with MACEPA
Malaria No More partner MACEPA* has joined the blogosphere!
MACEPA commemorated World Malaria Day with a host of events in Kombolcha town, Ethiopia; Katete, Zambia; and Mtwara, Tanzania—and kept track of them all on their World Malaria Day diary.
The MACEPA team took the opportunity to celebrate major accomplishments in Zambia in the last year—malaria dropped from the first to the sixth cause of all outpatient hospital visits, and reported deaths attributed to malaria were reduced by 66 percent in Zambia.
“Pamodzi, the Nyanja word for “together,” is a word with special significance in Zambia and particular importance to the fight against malaria,” writes MACEPA’s communications officer on World Malaria Day. The team emphasized, “Countries together need to consolidate their experience, lessons learned, and commitments to neighbors in order to see real progress on the scale of these global expectations.”

Since 2005, MACEPA has been working with Roll Back Malaria and the Government of Zambia to provide comprehensive malaria control interventions to all African communities. Read here about MACEPA’s on-the-ground efforts against malaria in Africa.
