Working with the Government of Senegal, USAID’s health program is working to provide long-lasting insecticide treated bed nets to every household in Senegal. A new initiative just launched Senegal’s first nationwide distribution campaign to achieve universal coverage.  The United States is contributing 1.9 million nets to this campaign. Rear Admiral Timothy Ziemer is the U.S. Global Coordinator for Malaria from the President’s Malaria Initiative and joined us to talk about malaria prevention here in Senegal.
