AngloGold Ashanti, Global Fund fights malaria in Ghana | Health News 2012-06-07

The AngloGold Ashanti (AGA) in collaboration with the Global Fund are scaling up the Indoor Residual Spraying (IRS) in 40 districts across the country, as part of an integrated malaria control programme.

This followed the successful pilot implementation of the IRS as a malaria control intervention by AGA in Obuasi and its environs, resulting in 75 per cent reduction in malaria cases within 2 years.

A statement signed by Mr. John Owusu, General Manager, Public Affairs of the company, copied to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) in Accra on Thursday, said the Global Fund approved $130 million to enable AGA execute the programme over a five year period.
