Chemonics International has partnered with Fio Corporation, a healthcare technology company, and Ivanhoe Mines, a Canadian mineral exploration and development company, to advance activities under the DRC’s National Malaria Control Program. Malaria is an entirely treatable disease, yet it continues to take a devastating toll on communities in the DRC. The residents of Haut Katanga and Lualaba provinces, where Ivanhoe Mines, our sponsoring partner on the Ivanhoe-Fio Project, operates two mining projects, have been hit especially hard by malaria. The Ivanhoe-Fio Project will provide workers at Ivanhoe Mines and their families and communities with access to a higher standard of frontline malaria care. The data that the Ivanhoe-Fio Project captures will help provincial and national governments strengthen disease surveillance and the management of malaria control activities in the DRC.
