Peace Corps is Stomping out Malaria in Africa

Peace Corps volunteers are making a difference for people in host communities by working across Africa to prevent malaria, educate and support people who are afflicted or at risk. From teaching families about the importance of sleeping under insecticide-treated bed nets, to educating expectant mothers about preventive treatments for healthy birth, Peace Corps Volunteers work with local community members, NGOs and the President's Malaria Initiative to combat this treatable and preventable disease.

Peace Corps' Stomping Out Malaria in Africa initiative mobilizes more than 3,000 Peace Corps Volunteers across the continent to make lasting impacts on malaria treatment and prevention. Partnering with the President's Malaria Initiative and Malaria No More, specially trained Peace Corps volunteers and staff are proud to be part of the international team to end malaria.
