USAID's committment to use DDT is most welcome and should bring
considerable support to the fight against malaria. We are disappointed
by the response of environmentalists who still call for the elimination
of DDT. Our response to them is "find a better alternative!"

USAID is increasing its funding for malaria control in Mozambique and
is using PSI to distribute insecticide treated nets. We recognise that
USAID is making real efforts to reform its malaria control program -
but it isn't clear from this report if the nets are being sold or given
away nor if any monitoring and evaluation is being conducted.

Malarial Mosquitoes Now (KMMN) campaign!
