Malaria is the leading cause of disease and death in Mali. USAID activities support the goal of the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) to reduce malaria-related mortality by 70 percent by the end of 2015.

USAID marked its fourth consecutive year of implementing PMI activities in Mali in 2012, achieving important results:

  • 1,509,920 long lasting insecticide-treated bed nets, which help prevent malaria, have been distributed
  • 205,066 houses were sprayed for mosquitoes during USAID's 2012 campaign, protecting 762,146 people during the July-September rainy season
  • 1 million malaria rapid diagnostic tests and 2,400,030 courses of malaria treatments were procured and provided to health facilities and community health workers
