Eliminating malaria in Africa requires a consistent approach. Since 2000, when Africa began an aggressive effort to control malaria, significant achievement has been made in controlling the disease in many African countries. Dr. Ned Nwoko through the Prince Ned Nwoko Foundation is embarking on this project to accelerate the elimination of malaria in Nigeria and other African countries to a point where it will no longer constitute a significant social problem through the following strategies:
Own up to your land and wipe the vectors out from there.
The goal of this project is to accelerate towards the attainment of malaria free Nigeria and adopt the same model in other African Countries.
- To strengthen collaboration for malaria elimination in Africa.
- To establish and support Academic Research Grant for malaria vaccine development.
- To mobilize communities and stakeholders to take ownership of the programme and its activities.
- To accelerate sub-regional approach that will allow all the countries in the continent to achieve their malaria elimination goals, thus paving the way towards a malaria-free Africa.
