USAID Helps Combat Malaria in Angola

The U.S. Agency for International Development is increasing its malaria aid for Angola to USD32 million this year, up from USD18 million, said Jason Smith, second secretary of the U.S. embassy in Angola.

The funding forms part of some USD63 billion in U.S. aid for 15 African nations to combat malaria in the next five years.

The U.S. is distributing insecticide-treated mosquito nets and medicines to help reduce the number of malaria cases in the African nation, Angop reports.
