Remarks by U.S. Ambassador Deborah Malac at the World Malaria Day Commemoration and the Launch of the First Nationwide Distribution of Long Lasting Insecticide Treated Bed Nets.
Good Morning. Today is a momentous occasion, with celebration of World Malaria Day and the launch of the first nationwide distribution of long lasting insecticide treated bed nets across Liberia.
The U.S.-Liberia relationship dates back nearly 200 years and is stronger than ever as we continue working together to get to zero Ebola cases. Liberia, under the leadership of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, has emerged from over a decade of war to be a key champion of democracy, peace, and development. The U.S. is Liberia’s leading partner, having invested over $1 billion in bilateral assistance since 2003.
On Friday, February 27, President Obama will welcome President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia to the White House. President Sirleaf’s visit comes at a time of critical cooperation between the United States and Liberia. As President Obama announced last week, the United States is moving to the next phase of its Ebola response, which will be characterized by an intensive effort to reach zero Ebola cases in West Africa.
