This project supported the rapid delivery of about 720,000 artemisinin-based combination therapies (ACTs) to Burundi and 680,000 to Liberia over the months between March and December 2007. This “emergency” project was designed to prevent a shortage of ACTs at the end of a Global Fund grant for the two countries.

UNITAID's support was instrumental in ensuring that the two countries were covered for these vital medicines while they waited for fresh funding for their malaria programmes.
