CHAI and partners expand Hispaniola Malaria Elimination Efforts

CHAI is proud to be part of a collaborative consortium working to eliminate malaria in Hispaniola by 2020 and create a malaria-free zone across the Caribbean. “Malaria was very nearly eliminated from Hispaniola in the 1960s, but funding and operational planning were insufficient to get the job done. This consortium has the exciting opportunity to help Haiti and the Dominican Republic finally wipe out malaria in the Caribbean and end a disease that has been a burden there since it was first introduced 500 years ago,” said Justin Cohen, Ph.D., M.P.H., senior director, Global Malaria.
