Every year, malaria kills 1-2 million people. 90% of these deaths occur in sub-Saharan Africa making it the worst-hit continent. The End Malaria Program aims to prevent and reduce malaria through a combination of interventions (scale-up of prevention and control efforts with community involvement).
Although malaria is a preventable and curable disease, there’s a need to educate community health workers, health committee volunteers, teachers and the public on its prevention and treatment.
With a focus on reducing child mortality, we reach women with messages on the prevention and treatment of Malaria. We also distribute long-lasting insecticide-treated nets to women and young people in rural communities.
