In 2012 Peace Corps celebrated its 50th uninterrupted year in Cameroon. Today, nearly 200 volunteers here work in education, agriculture, environment, health, youth and economic development.
Also in 2012 Stomp Out Malaria was inaugurated in Cameroon with the arrival of Peace Corps Response volunteer Jesse Casanova (Boot Camp IV) and continues in 2013 under the auspices of Response volunteers Martin Becker and Imoite Omulepu (Boot Camp VI).
Following the mass distribution of bednets in 2011, WHO reports that 60% of households have at least one LLIN, and the National Malaria Control Program reports a resultant drop, albeit modest thus far, in malaria mortality and morbidity. Peace Corps volunteers throughout Cameroon are becoming increasingly involved in malaria activities, including education, behavior change communication, and surveillance.
