The Angolan Minister of Health, José Van-Dunem, says that the US$1.8 million donation made to the country’s National Malaria Fighting Programme aims to increase the capacity of the NGOs to implement the programme so as to control malaria.

Van-Dunem says the success of this programme will impact on three key elements of the Millennium Development Goal in regard to health, reduction of endemic diseases, malaria, tuberculosis and AIDS.

He explains that the policy of combating malaria and poverty is part of the fundamental strategy of his government and it serves as an evaluation, because the reduction of child mortality, malaria and maternal mortality is a priority.
