Thanks to your support, the Alliance was able to distribute 627 nets to families in the Ouelessebougou region of Mali.
The Alliance provides mosquito netting at a subsidized cost to village families to prevent the contraction of malaria. Since 2004 the Alliance has distributed over 5,000 nets, but the malaria epidemic continues to rage and threaten the health and economic well-being of the villagers who are not protected by nets.
This year’s Mosquito Netting Initiative is designed to concentrate administrative health efforts to dispense mosquito netting to every child and their primary caregiver in 24 villages in the Ouelessebougou region.
Training is provided for villagers to help them gain an understanding of the importance of using the net every night (the peak time for mosquito bites) while they sleep during the rainy season (May through September).
Training is also provided on how to keep the net in good repair so it will last the full seven years.
