TIPS ON MALARIA

  • HOW CAN MOSQUITOES BE CONTROLLED?

    Mosquitoes around the home can be reduced significantly by minimizing the amount of standing water available for mosquito breeding. Residents are urged to reduce standing water around the home in a variety of ways.

  • HOW CAN I PROTECT MYSELF FROM MOSQUITO-BORN DISEASES?

    The best way is to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes.This can be accomplished using personal protecting  while outdoors when mosquitoes are present. Treated bed nets should be used sleeping. Mosquito repellent should be used when outdoor.

  • WHO ARE AT RISK?


    Nearly half of the world’s population is at risk of getting malaria. Pregnant women are particularly at risk of malaria. Children under 5 years are at high risk of malaria.

MIM Conference

 

 

 
 

 MIM is an alliance of individuals, funding partners and   four   autonomous   constituents   and contributes to global  efforts to address the
problem of malaria by facilitating the  emergence of dynamic malaria research networks and collaboration with malaria control  programs in Africa through the following objectives:

  • Developing sustainable malaria research capacity in Africa – through international and Pan-African scientific partnerships and training.
  • Promoting global communication and cooperation-between institutions in an effort to  maximize`impact of resources and avoid duplication of effort.

The   Multilateral  Initiative  on  Malaria  (MIM)   was established in 1997 with a mission to strengthen and sustain through collaborative research and training, the capacity of malaria-endemic countries in Africa to carry out research that is required to develop and improve tools for malaria control.
