Bayer, with more than 60 years of experience in developing vector control solutions, therefore partners with Goodbye Malaria to reinforce commitment to expanding access to vector control tools and preventing people from contracting the disease.

As Bayer continues to invest in the development of new vector-control solutions such as Fludora™ Fusion, specifically targeting the challenge of insecticide resistance in this area of the world, the alliance will offer crucial insights into the challenges of product implementation.

GBM is not only involved in rolling out vector control programs but also acts as an ambassador, advocating IRS as a key tool and educating people that malaria elimination is possible.

Goodbye Malaria’s philosophy and engagement resonates with the commitment of Bayer towards malaria elimination and the company mission of Science for a Better Life.
