Yesterday, all 25 Boot Camp II attendees presented on their country’s malaria burden, prevention techniques, and how Peace Corps is involved in the whole process. Great to see where everyone is, how we can work together, and what we can expect in the coming months.
Hard working PCVs and their counterparts in Malawi. The June 2011 distributions covered the districts of Salima and Nkhotakota. Nets were provided by the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
“Chitetezo” means “protection” in Chichewa, the most widely spoken local language in Malawi. In June 2011, six PCVs and their local counterparts distributed over 200,000 mosquito nets in the districts of Salima and Nkhotakota.
