Artists help fight malaria in Uganda
This World Malaria Day, United Against Malaria partners reached out to communities across Uganda with the help of music. Two popular local artists, Bobi Wine and Samalie Matovu, produced a song promoting net usage, diagnostics and treatment.
The song will be promoted on Ugandan radio and television, while MTN, a leading communication company in Uganda, offered 20 million shillings to promote malaria advocacy and prevention songs. Voices for a Malaria-Free Future is grateful to Bobi and Samalie for using their talents and to MTN for using its influence to advocate for a response from the Ugandan government to fight against malaria.
