Rotarians’ Growing Collaboration to End Malaria

 

Jeff Pritchard, Board Chair of Rotarian Malaria Partners, will provide an update on the malaria elimination campaign and describe several ground-breaking projects where Rotarians are saving lives and reclaiming lost productivity. Malaria has killed more humans than any other disease and remains a deadly menace for nearly 2 billion of the world’s population.  In highly endemic regions like Sub-Saharan Africa and Papua New Guinea, Rotarians have been playing a growing role in efforts to eliminate this disease.
