Challenge

Malaria makes AIDS or HIV+ status worse. Nearly 800,000 children under 5 die from malaria each year. Without treatment, a child with acute malaria may die within 24 hours. Everyday Malaria kills 320 Ugandans, 80% 0f these are children below 5 years. Sleeping under a treated bed net, spraying insecticide inside homes, and using the right anti-malarial drugs dramatically reduce the impact of malaria. The targeted 300 needy children and their families can hardly afford to pay for any of these.

Solution

The project will give 300 treated mosquito nets to needy children. Will provide insecticides to 100 families Train 24 community based health volunteers. Sensitive the10 Gayaza communities on malaria and the causes of malaria and preventable measures. Provide malaria prevention advocacy materials in public places.

Long-Term Impact

We will provide 300 life saving mosquito nets to needy children,insuring them against Malaria.
