Zimbabwe country pullquote

We provide extensive training to spray operators to ensure maximum effectiveness every time they enter a home. We want to make sure that we reduce the chance of mosquito survival and the spread of malaria.

Malaria is the most common cause of illness in Zimbabwe, killing approximately 10 percent of children before their fifth birthday. And while the country has reduced its HIV prevalence in half since 1997, it still has one of the top-10 highest rates in the world.

Abt Associates is working to reduce the impact of malaria and HIV. For malaria, we are killing the mosquitoes that transmit the disease, training health workers in case management, facilitating mosquito net distribution, and implementing social and behavior change activities.  For HIV, we are a partner in a project to improve testing, prevention, and treatment.

The number of people Abt helped protect from malaria in 2016, including more than 95,000 children under age 5 and more than 17,000 pregnant women.
