The Honorable Minister of Health and Child Care, Dr David Parirenyatwa officially opened the Annual National Malaria Conference at Cutty Sark Hotel. In his opening remarks Dr Parirenyatwa said, while Zimbabwe had scored high in malaria prevention, cross border collaboration between Zimbabwe and its neighboring countries is key to the country’s efforts to increase malaria elimination and to consolidate current achievements.
