Zambia: Power of Partnerships
Irene Sinzi stood eagerly outside of her home in the village of Mufumbwe, in Zambia’s North-Western province, waiting to receive her insecticide-treated net. It was an important day for Irene and her one-year-old child, as the Government of Zambia is undertaking the mass distribution of nearly nine million nets, simultaneously distributing them to all provinces across the country.
“I’ve had malaria before and it was terrible,” said the 21-year old mother. “I’m so happy because this mosquito net will protect us from malaria.”
