MEDA casts wider net to save lives in Tanzania

MEDA (Mhome-MEDAennonite Economic Development Associates) is on the front lines of a new $21 million project in Tanzania to get young children sleeping under life-protecting malaria nets over the next two years. Working with Tanzania’s ministry of health and social welfare and the Global Fund for Aids, Tuberculosis and Malaria, MEDA will coordinate distribution of 7.2 million long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs) nationwide at no cost over the next year. With an estimated 6 lives spared for every 1,000 nets sold, Hati Punguzo (voucher program) and MEDA have already saved more than 27,000 lives, and are protecting countless more.
