ty of Olyset nets will protect the Central Highlands residents for a minimum of five years."

The bed net distribution is part of an integrated Measles Initiative campaign that will also distribute measles and polio vaccines, Vitamin A supplements, and de-worming pills to children. According to a recent UNICEF report, child mortality has reached a record low, dropping below 10 million deaths worldwide (to 9.7 million), down from almost 13 million in 1990. Efforts to combat malaria and measles have played a significant role in that decline.

ABOUT MALARIA NO MORE

Malaria No More's mission is simple: to end deaths due to malaria. The world has known how to beat this disease for more than a century, yet it remains the number one killer of children under five in Africa, claiming more than 1 million lives a year. Malaria No More works to raise the profile of the disease among the public, policymakers, and businesses, while engaging the private sector to provide life-saving bed nets and other critical interventions to families in Africa.

ABOUT SUMITOMO CHEMICAL

Sumitomo Chemical is a multi-national Japanese company, with decades of experience in insecticide manufacturing and plastics technology. Dedicated to solving environmental and social problems through innovative technology and sustainable development, Sumitomo Chemical believes the cycle of poverty can be broken by the prevention of vector-borne diseases. As Olyset has been proven to be the most cost-effective malaria intervention today, Sumitomo Chemical is working to ensure this technology reaches those in need through provision of donated or low-cost nets, and through participation in a 50/50 joint venture for local African manufacture of Olyset.
