Crossing New Bridges

Chief of Party, Peter Mumba, and the VL Ethiopia team received high praise from the U.S President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) for their efforts in this year’s spray campaign. The VectorLink Ethiopia team was asked to conduct indoor residual spray  (IRS) in 26 new, very challenging districts in 2018. Despite major operational challenges, the Gambela region observed a dramatic drop in malaria incidence last year (see recent success story). Under Peter’s leadership, the VectorLink Ethiopia team reinforced planning, provisions, government engagement, and training in 2019, which has resulted in a huge improvement in IRS operations. Congrats Ethiopia!
