In October, 2021, USAID’s partner, PSI Angola, signed an agreement with one of Angola’s leading private banks, Banco de Fomento Angola (BFA).  The agreement is in keeping with USAID’s practice of partnering with the private sector to achieve common goals.  In this case, BFA is contributing 30 million kwanzas (approximately 50,000 USD) to the U S President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) bed net campaign, which is implemented by PSI under the USAID-funded Health for All (HFA) project.  Through HFA, USAID supports the National Malaria Control Programme within the Ministry of Health to implement a mass distribution of nets in the provinces with the highest malaria incidents rates - Cuanza Norte, Malanje, Uíge, Lunda Sul, Lunda Norte and Zaire.  The financing from BFA will assist in funding community activists, who are vital in implementing the distribution process.

Octávio Longuenza is not one to shy away from tough jobs. He spends up to three months living and working underground in the diamond mines in Angola’s Lunda-sul Province, followed by three months aboveground working other jobs, including as a driver to deliver malaria supplies to communities in Lunda-sul. Octávio’s willingness to get his hands dirty is a welcome trait when it comes to driving delivery trucks around Angola during the rainy malaria season.
