Senegal PCV Ian Hennessee, Abby Aldridge of Togo, Susan Vulpas of Mali, Mike Toso of Senegal, and Debrah Lee of Madagascar discuss scaling up classic malaria interventions in their host countries, and what roles Peace Corps Volunteers might be able to play. These volunteers and more came to Senegal for an intensive bootcamp-style training on the science of malaria, its diagnosis and treatment, and new ways to fight it. Today, they’re taking up new positions in their host countries as leaders in the fight against malaria.

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.
