BG Tanzania - World Malaria Day 2013

On World Malaria Day, United Against Malaria partners old and new reached out to employees and communities across Tanzania, where approximately 60,000 malaria-related deaths occur each year.

New partner BG Tanzania (British Gas) marked World Malaria Day with in-house medical training, where its doctors administered diagnostic tests, taught employees how to self-test for malaria, and discussed proper treatments such as artemisinin combination therapies. The international energy company distributed insecticide-treated nets, mosquito repellent and UAM polo shirts to its workers. It also donated medical equipment to the Mwananyamala District Hospital. Voices participated in the information session by screening Chumo, an award-winning drama about love and malaria.
