Summary

This project provides insecticide-treated nets and anti-malaria tablets to protect people, especially young children, in Sierra Leone from mosquito-transmitted malaria - a life threatening disease.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Of the half million people who die annually from the disease of malaria worldwide, children younger than five years old are the main victims. Only about 5% of children sleep under protective nets in Sierra Leone where malaria is still a killer disease. Malaria causes unnecessary sickness, hospitalization and deaths which could easily be prevented. Productivity in the community is also affected when people fall sick and become incapacitated and unable to work and provide for their families.

How will this project solve this problem?

We work to ensure that people in Sierra Leone receive protection from malaria by providing anti-malaria preventative medication, long-lasting insecticide-treated bed nets and education on the importance of their use.

Potential Long Term Impact

People in Sierra Leone will learn to value and understand the importance of taking preventative measures to control the disease of malaria by the regular use of distributed bed nets and anti-malaria medication. The spread of malaria and deaths caused by the disease will be reduced and lives will be saved.
