​The MTN Group fight against malaria initiative was launched in 2010 as part of the Malaria Legacy initiative.

Using its vast presence across Africa, the MTN Group launched a programme to distribute much-needed mosquito nets. The MTN Group also supports awareness education in affected communities.

In Zambia, MTN has partnered with the National Malaria Control Centre (NAMAC) to raise awareness about the disease and help reverse its trends.

Since its inception in 2010, we have supported the NAMAC, especially during World Malaria week, and assisted with the distribution of insecticide treated mosquito nets in malaria prone areas and health posts across the country.
