Through this project, the LLF aims to provide Senegal with a substantial boost to its capacity to diagnose and treat malaria, supporting the country’s mission to eradicate malaria. The project is providing 2.5 million people with free, long lasting insecticide-treated nets, contributing to the free distribution of 1.6 million rapid diagnosis tests and more than 70,000 doses of anti-malarial drugs, improving malaria surveillance and diagnosis by trained professionals, providing 4 million people with advice on how to avoid malaria, and training 400 community workers and health care providers in malaria control and case management.

Impact Facts & Figures

Enabling people to lead better lives

We believe the most effective way to create an impact is to empower countries to do so themselves. We help break down the barriers that prevent individuals, organizations and governments in the lowest income countries from obtaining the resources they need to accomplish this goal.
