Project Report | Jun 2, 2023
Malaria update - World Malaria Day

By Margaret Reynolds | Vice President

In 2021, almost half of the world's population was at risk of malaria. 247 million people suffered from malaria with 619,000 deaths. More than 95% of these deaths were in Africa. In Uganda, specifically, they may have more than 150,000 cases per week. Over the past two years the number of malaria cases has risen indicating some lost ground in our battle against this deadly disease! 

It is easy to get lost in facts and figures. What does this mean for the Ugandan children and students in Katulikire? It means that these children are high risk for malaria infection. Unfortunately, the best measures of prevention remain long lasting ITN's and avoiding standing water, etc. The distribution of nets, which largely is occurring through the health center, helps with prevention of infection. Hopefully, one day there will be a vaccine. However, until this time students miss school, parents miss days working with crops, and the most vulnerable end up hospitalized with the disease. The need for LLITN's is growing. We thank you for your support.
