Malaria globally kills over a million people each year most of whom are defenseless children. Malaria is the most prevalent disease of patients presenting to Kisiizi Hospitall and it also disables many of our capable staff. Providing insecticide treated bed nets to patients and staff and educating them on why they should use the nets, how to care for them and store them will reduce the death and disability from malaria.


Each patient admitted to Kisiizi Hospital will be given a bed net and personally educated as to why they should use it, how to hang it, care for it and store it. Since most of these patients have malaria, they are highly motivated.

Long-Term Impact

This project will provide bed nets for as many as possible patients of Kisiizi Hospital thus ending the cycle of repeated attacks of malaria and repeated cycles of death and permanent disability from this preventable disease.
