Brazil: 58.8 million USD to fight malaria

November 17th, 2009

malariaThe Government of Brazil has announced that it will earmark 100 million reais to launch a “roll back malaria” project in the Amazon region in the next five years.

The money will benefit local communities in 47 municipalities in six states, said Jose Gomes Temporao, the country’s health minister, at the project’s inauguration ceremony in Manaus, Amazonas state.

These communities account for 70 percent of some 458,000 malaria cases registered in Brazil in 2007, he added.

He said the project’s goal is to reduce by 50 percent of malaria cases there.

The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria will finance Brazil in implementing the project which will go into operation in 2010.

He said the Global Fund’s financial assistance will help Brazil improve medical care in areas with higher malaria incidence.

The minister said Brazil has made remarkable achievements in rolling back malaria in the past few years, reducing malaria cases by 150 percent from 2005 to 2008.

“Our goal is to cut the incidence of malaria cases down to no more than 150,000 in 2014, an important and significant reduction,” he said.
