Households Registration Underway for Distribution of Mosquito Nets

1 min read

Household registration for the mass net distribution program is underway in six counties across the country, signaling progress in malaria prevention efforts.

Health authorities are ramping up preparations to ensure thorough registration, focusing on maximizing participation in the upcoming distribution.

The initiative, targeting communities at risk of mosquito-borne diseases in Kisumu, Siaya, Migori, Mombasa, Kwale, and Taita Taveta counties, aims to provide widespread access to insecticide-treated bed nets.

The Kenya Kwanza government hopes to distribute 15.3 million nets to approximately 23 million people in 22 high malaria burden counties.

With the goal of reducing malaria transmission rates and improving health outcomes, this effort signifies a crucial step forward in combating malaria in these regions.

This is program underscores the government’s sustained effort to reduce the burden of malaria in the country.

Currently, malaria is the most lethal mosquito-transmitted disease.

Insecticide-treated nets serve a dual function by acting as a physical barrier between the mosquito vector and humans, and exposing the mosquito to a lethal dose of insecticide when it lands on the net.

Kenya is making strides in the fight against malaria due to the government’s concerted efforts to combat the disease.
