Roll Back Malaria Campaign

AVIF Volunteers will now be assisting with distribution of goods and literature to all our hosts in the effort to eliminate Malaria, in line with Millennium Development Goals 6 and 7 and in attempts to achieve the Abuja targets of reducing malaria mortality and morbidity by 60% before 2010.
Working with KeNAAM (part of the World Health Organisation) we will be disseminating materials for the National Malaria Strategy and Communication.

Simply by passing on information AVIF Volunteers can help prevent, control and reduce the socio-economic burden of malaria. 
Small world, it must be. CEO of KeNAAM, Mr Gerald Mwangi Walterfang studied at Leeds University, where he met his wife. (I studied there too and live half an hour away.)
