Nandi-Ndaitwah calls on SADC to jointly fight malaria

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of International Relations and Cooperation, Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah says it has become costly to combat malaria, hence the need for regional collaboration to eliminate the disease in Namibia and neighbouring countries. Nandi-Ndaitwah noted that eliminating malaria from SADC through Elimination-8 will greatly contribute to member states boasting healthier and more resilient populations by fostering relationships of trust between stakeholders to promote health, minimise risk, and mitigate the consequences of public health events.
