£50 million malaria project announced for Nigeria

This article was originally published in Scrip

Executive Summary

A new £50 million project to tackle malaria in Nigeria has been announced by the UK Department for International Development (DFID). The project will provide up to four million mosquito bed nets and 10 million antimalarial drug treatments, alongside additional health measures, and will target pregnant mothers, babies and children. International Development Minister Gillian Merron welcomed the project, saying it could directly prevent around 150,000 deaths and, by tying in with other resources, had the potential to prevent up to a million. The investment will also support Nigeria's five year National Malaria Control Programme (NMCP), along with extra funding from the Nigerian Government, the Global Fund and the World Bank, among other donors.
