PMI seasonal malaria prevention for children in Pelengana Segou
April 25, 2022

On World Malaria Day, the United States and Mali have much to celebrate in our successes against this deadly disease, and we reaffirm our commitment to continue this work with our Malian partners. This past year, the United States and Mali continued to advance the fight against malaria, despite immense challenges posed by conflict and COVID-19. Committed and courageous frontline health workers, especially nurses, midwives, and community health workers across the country went to great lengths to sustain essential malaria services. Their efforts saved lives and supported community resilience.

Northern Mali faces numerous challenges due to marginalization, recurring conflict, displacement of people, and historical inequities in governance and the delivery of social services. This new program, Momentum Integrated Health Resilience, is a symbol of the United States Government’s commitment to helping all Malians lead healthier lives and benefit from peace and national reconciliation. The program will begin by working to strengthen health systems and the quality of healthcare services in the urban health districts of Gao and Timbuktu before expanding to other areas in the North.
