A documentary about the first 10 years of the work on Bioko has been nominated for an award in a competition run by the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship.
It is the only nomination in the Global Health arena. The documentary, “Hope for Bioko”, shares the story of this unique, innovative private-public partnership highlighting the malaria control program and now including the malaria vaccine initiative.
Public voting for the 2018 International Corporate Citizenship Film Festival will close on Monday, February 19, 2018.
Equatorial Guinea has implemented fifteen years of successful malaria control on Bioko Island through the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare supported initially by MCDI (Medical Care Development International) and later involving Sanaria. This program represents one of the most progressive and successful Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) projects in the Global Health arena. The CSR partners in this program include Marathon Oil, Noble Energy, Equatorial Guinea Liquefied Natural Gas and Atlantic Methanol, and important public sector financing and involvement has come from the Government of Equatorial Guinea.
