Reporting positive contribution of volunteering to the SDGs

Paragraph 1, page 28

Reporting only 22 local cases of Malaria in 2013, Belize is making remarkable progresstoward national malaria elimination in advance of the 2020 goal set for the region. No deathsdue to malaria have been reported since 2006. Such improvement can be attributed to active surveillance and community based interventions (elimination of breeding sites, increased distribution of bed nets, and improved detection through clinical finding and laboratory testing at health facilities and by community volunteers), intersectoral cooperation, and cross-border collaboration with Guatemala and Mexico. Priority is given to preventive interventions, early detection, care and treatment.Belize is at the pre-elimination stage for malaria.
