US Presidential Malaria Initiative is expanding

September 21, 2017 - 20:28 -- William Jobin

Today 21 September 2017, Administrator Mark Green announced that the U.S. President's Malaria Initiative (PMI), led by USAID and implemented together with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), will launch new country programs in Cameroon, Cote d'Ivoire, Niger, and Sierra Leone, and expand its existing program in Burkina Faso.

With the addition of five new focus countries in West and Central Africa, PMI will have programs in 24 countries in sub-Saharan Africa,

This is good news because the PMI seemed to be in limbo after Donald Trump became President and Tim Ziemer resigned from PMI. Let us hope the PMI continues its successful work.
