In a concerted effort to combat malaria, the Anloga District Health Directorate has announced plans to distribute over 15,000 treated mosquito nets to approximately 27,000 households within the district.

This annual initiative, aimed at curbing the transmission of malaria in local communities, is scheduled to kick off in April following the compilation of household names by registration assistants.

Mr. Worlanyo, the district's malaria focal person, outlined that between February 29th and March 4th, registration assistants will endeavor to register 90% of households across 108 communities using a designated app. This app ensures equitable distribution of nets to each household, preventing any manipulation of the registration process.

Emphasizing the importance of active participation, Worlanyo urged all households and family heads to avail themselves for this crucial exercise.

Ms. Abigail Kojo, the acting director of health services, expressed gratitude for the support received from stakeholders and called on them to mobilize communities for the forthcoming registration period, slated for February 29th to March 4th.

Kojo underscored the misuse of mosquito nets, noting instances where they were used to house chickens or cover gardens. She reiterated that the nets are not for sale and urged the populace to utilize them for their intended purpose – safeguarding against malaria transmission by sleeping under them.

The initiative underscores the district's commitment to public health and underscores the collaborative efforts needed to combat malaria effectively. Stay tuned for updates on this vital public health campaign.
