The Managing Director of Ecobank Uganda, Grace Muliisa has called for awareness as one of the ways to help curb Malaria in Uganda.

"Despite the tireless efforts of many, malaria continues to claim thousands of Ugandan lives each year, disrupting families and stalling our progress as a nation. The World Health Organization provides us with sobering statistics, yet behind each number is a human story, a dream deferred. Our strategy is robust—partnering with influential entities to ignite a nationwide campaign of awareness and action," Muliisa said.

"Through these alliances, and on days like World Malaria Day and World Mosquito Day, we amplify our voices and galvanize support, driving crucial resources toward malaria prevention and control."

The Ecobank Managing Director was speaking during the annual anti-Malaria walk at parliament on Saturday.

She that as part of the zero Malaria business leadership initiative, Ecobank is proud to align with the Ministry of Health, the Parliament of Uganda, and other  partners from the private sector to  wield the torch of progress against the darkness of disease.

"Our achievements speak to the power of unity, with 65 companies engaged and over $4.3 million mobilized in financial and in-kind contributions, our coalition stands as a bulwark against malaria’s advance."

"With relentless determination, Ecobank Uganda is dedicated to catalyzing further engagement across the private sector, championing the government’s visionary goal of a malaria-free Uganda by 2030."

She applauded Parliament, Ministry of Health and other partners for leading the fight against Malaria in the country.
