Map of MALARIA In 2005,the Sania and Bunyala communities living around the lake were more prevelant to malaria than any other disease.There clinics and hospitals recorded a high number of patient with malaria.As a result there was a rise in death rate in the two communities as the hospitals and the clinics could contain the high number of patients with malaria and this also affected those suffering from HIV/AIDS as the disease accelerated their death as they had no proper protection from malaria. The schools in the those areas also suffered as those in boarding school were frequently affected.So the area members of parliament raise the concerned and together with the medical officers in the area they came up with a decision officers in the area they came up with a decision to spray the area with a certain insecticide or chemicals that killed mosquitoes that caused malaria.After this chemical had been sprayed in all schools,homes and bushes there was a significant reduction of patients with malaria and the death rate in the two communities sharply declined.
