According to the statement, AGA solely financed the Obuasi malaria programme, which reduced malaria cases in the municipality by 75 per cent, with over nine million dollars invested in four years.

“AGA’s contribution towards the control of malaria includes: information and education, to raise community awareness on how to recognise and prevent possible infections, and early effective diagnosis and treatment, once malaria has been contracted”, it said.

The statement said the Fund approved $130 million funding to enable AGA to expand the programme over a five-year period, after the Country Coordinating Mechanism selected the company as the recipient of the grant.

It said a projected 3,800 job opportunities would be created in targeted communities over the next five years to ensure the long-term sustainability and success of the programme beyond the  Fund sponsorship  period.
