Lead Paragraph/Summary

As the father of six children, George Ntamagara knows that his role as a warehouse and logistics specialist for malaria supplies is a key piece to making sure children in Burundi are protected from malaria. This hero helps manage supplies like long-lasting insecticide-treated bed nets, tests, and treatments for malaria. His work is central to the supply chain in Burundi.

Since 2016, the USAID Global Health Supply Chain Program-Procurement and Supply Management (GHSC-PSM) project has worked with the CAMEBU Central Warehouse in Burundi to improve warehouse efficiency. Strong central-level warehouses are key to ensuring supplies reach health facilities in communities across the country to help prevent and treat malaria. Support from the U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) ensures children and adults have access to these supplies, leading to greater malaria control and healthier communities.
