Lead Paragraph/Summary

Malaria is one of the top-five causes of mortality in Madagascar. But getting effective prevention and treatment to those who need it isn't always easy. 

In 2018, GHSC-PSM — with support from the U.S. President's Malaria Initiative (PMI) — helped procure and distribute 13 million long-lasting insecticide-treated nets as part of a mass distribution campaign in Madagascar. The nets would ultimately reach more than 7,700 distribution sites and protect people in more than 5.9 million households.

Check out the short video below to see what it takes to deliver these nets.
