– NGOs Partner Ministry Of Health To Provide Millions Of Mosquito Nets

As part of efforts against malaria, the Society for Family Health (SFH) and Catholic Relief Services, have earmarked $18 million for the purchase and distribution of 4.7 million long lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs) across the 34 local government areas of Katsina State.

The programme, being implemented in collaboration with the National Malaria Elimination Programme of the Federal Ministry of Health, the Roll Back Malaria Partnership and the Katsina State Ministry of Health, is expected to be executed between September and October.

The nationwide malaria eradication initiative started in 2009 with a total of over 77 million nets so far distributed across the 36 states, SFH Katsina State Focal Person, Aminu Murtala, said yesterday as he spoke at a media enlightenment programme in Katsina.

He described the current distribution exercise as a move to replace the nets earlier given to beneficiaries in 2014, using the strategy of one net for every two persons in a household, subject to a maximum of four nets per household for universal coverage, in accordance with WHO recommendations.

According to Murtala, “Katsina State has malaria as the number one reason for health facility attendance (70 per cent out-patient attendance) and the number of diagnosed cases has increased considerably over the last year.”

Murtala also noted that the media enlightenment programme was designed enlist the media to join the national crusade for “malaria-free Nigeria”, to improve the knowledge of reporters on malaria prevention and control strategies among others.
