“Malaria remains the main cause of mortality in Angola,” said Alan Kleier, Chevron Managing Director for Southern Africa Business Unit. “As part of Chevron’s core community investment strategies, we will continue to work closely with the Angolan Government and partners in order to meet the goal of a malaria-free Angola. I firmly believe that our investment in this capacity building training program in entomology is equally important as our contribution of $5 million made in 2008 through the Global Fund against Malaria for Angola. It will help create a group of Angolan experts who will be better prepared to fight this disease.”

“This unique partnership between the private sector, Government of Angola and PMI provides an opportunity to build in country capacity to monitor malaria control interventions in Angola,” said Rick Wilkins, Vice President, Corporate Alliance on Malaria in Africa and General Manager Health & Medical Services, Chevron. “It builds a foundation to develop an effective resistance management and monitoring strategy in Angola- areas in which the private sectors expertise can be leveraged.”

“This training will provide robust knowledge for Angola’s entomologist technicians,” said Jules Mihigo, PMI/Angola. “Health staff will be trained to monitor resistance to insecticides used for bed nets and indoor residual spraying, and will also be able to detect morphological distinction between a culex and anopheles. These skills will contribute to reduce the burden of malaria in Angola.”
