Dear Dr. Schwabe,


It's a pleasure to write to congratulate the committed professionals at Medical Care Development (MCD) for receiving the U.S. State Department's 2019 P3 Impact Award, a well-deserved recognition of your leadership in the Bioko Island Malaria Elimination Program. I am honored to add my voice to those gathered today to celebrate this great achievement, and acknowledge MCD's significant role in improving rural health care.


In strategic collaboration with the Government of Equatorial Guinea and a network of corporate partners, organization, and firms - including the University of Southern Maine - you have made meaningful steps toward the elimination of Malaria on Bioko Island. Innovative Public-Private Partnerships such as these are critical to improving health internationally, and here in Maine.


This is why I am especially excited to salute MCD's work in Maine. For over 50 years, MCD has helped Maine communities statewide thrive. Organizations like MCD that work in the field, delivering treatment and conducting research, are essential to provide superior benefits to the population they server.


Again, thank you for all that you do, in Maine and beyond, and congratulations for receiving this well-deserved arward.


Best Regards,



Angus S. King, Jr.

United States Senator
