Together with its partners, PMI has helped save more than seven million lives and prevented more than a billion cases of malaria since 2000.
22 PMI partner countries in sub-Saharan Africa have seen significant reductions in all-cause mortality rates in children under age 5, with declines ranging from 10 percent to 67 percent. Eight PMI partner countries plus Zanzibar (in Tanzania) are on the path to being malaria-free.
PMI has worked with partner countries to build capacity and systems to combat malaria, which also equip them to better respond to other public health threats, and help keep America and the world safer.
Led by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and co-implemented with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), PMI has become one of the U.S. government’s greatest development success stories.
The week of June 30, please take action for PMI to help us celebrate 15 years of impact!
In trying times, we must take a moment to recognize that we have the capacity to make positive changes in people’s lives. For 15 years, PMI has done just that. Please take a moment to send a letter to your Members of Congress in support of PMI and its international partners like the Global Fund and the UN. It takes only a minute to make a tangible impact:
Please also encourage your friends and family to take action in honor of PMI's 15th Anniversary by sharing these messages on social media:
