Marathon and Partners Announce $28 Million, 5-Year Extension of Life Saving Malaria Control Project in Equatorial Guinea
Date:9/25/2008

nded to the mainland of Equatorial Guinea through a multi-year commitment by the Global Fund totaling $26 million and an additional Marathon Foundation grant of $1 million, making this program the only integrated malaria control project with nationwide coverage in Africa.

"The Bioko Island Malaria Control Project demonstrates Marathon's commitment to the communities where we operate and where we live," said Clarence P. Cazalot, Jr., Marathon president and CEO. "Our support for extending and scaling up this initiative for another five years reflects our dedication to improving the wellbeing of the citizens of Equatorial Guinea. We commend the Government of Equatorial Guinea for encouraging the creation of this successful private-public partnership that provides social benefits and makes a significant difference in the lives of Equatoguineans."

The extension of this initiative through 2013 is aimed at leveraging already documented project success and accelerating the attainment of project goals. The effort will remain focused on capacity building of the national team to achieve long-term sustainability.

"By bringing together an integrated team of companies from the private sector, leading health specialists, and Equatorial Guinea's Ministry of Health and Social Wellbeing, we have created a successful partnership and a malaria intervention model for the whole of Sub-Saharan Africa," said His Excellency Obiang Nguema Mbasogo President of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea. "We have responded to the call to action presented by United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon by extending our malaria control program for an additional five years. I hope my country's commitment will inspire others to commit to the fight against malaria so one day Africa will be malaria free."

As the BIMCP enters its fifth year in 2008, it has already achieved life saving results (based on annual household surveys):
