English: The Niger distribution handed out two million nets: The distribution program, funded by the Global Fund, which sponsors plans to combat tuberculosis, AIDS, and malaria worldwide, finished up in Niger last month. And in the end, at nearly four-thousand distribution points across the country, more than two-million bed nets were handed out.

Ibrahim Ousmane, the head of Niger's Fight Against Malaria program, says he hopes the project will have a big impact in fighting the disease, which is one of the primary obstacles to African development.

"We have, every year, deaths in Niger by malaria," he says. "And with malaria, people cannot work. We have, again, pregnant women who have very big problems with malaria. We think it is the first disease in our country (which) gives us big problems."
