Ministry ups efforts to fight malaria

The Ministry of Health and Child Welfare has sourced over 1 million mosquito nets as a precaution against malaria.

REPORT BY TAWANDA MARWIZI

Speaking at a media sensitisation workshop in Mudzi last week, National Malaria Programme manager, Joseph Mberikunashe, said the ministry was making sure that the citizens would be protected from mosquitoes.

“We have already gathered about 1,3 million Insectcide Treated Nets, which we are going to receive in December from the Global Fund and then half a million of them from an organisation called PMI,” he said.

Mberikunashe said they were preparing the ground work for the distribution of the mosquito nets. “They are treated nets. they kill the mosquito and prevent it from any contact with the person,” he said.

He said they would give nets to households. “We felt it proper to have the traditional leadership help us to distribute them. we will distribute them to each household,” he said.

Besides the distribution of mosquito nets, they will spray a chemical called Dichlro-DiphenylTrichloro-Ethano (DDT) in some provinces.
