World Malaria Day 2016
Today is World Malaria Day 2016.

It is a day set out to globally share knowledge about Malaria, raise funds, rally support for improved research, promote malaria prevention techniques including mosquito nets and more.

Today, President, Malaria Society of Nigeria (MSN), Dr Babajide Puddicombe said in spite of the efforts committed to fight the malaria scourge, Nigeria still had the highest number of malaria casualties worldwide.

“A lot of resources and efforts have since been committed to fighting the malaria scourge and the results worldwide in the last 10 years have been encouraging.

“Thanks to the introduction of Artemisinin Combination Therapy (ACT) and long lasting insecticide treated nets.

“However, with about 100 million malaria cases and about 300,000 deaths annually, Nigeria has the highest number of malaria casualties worldwide, ” he said, quoting figures from the World Health Organisation.

BNers, Are we winning the fight against Malaria?

We will love your thoughts and personal experiences.

    I heard of this paint – Inesfly Insecticide paint. Its a 2in1 paint meaning it serves as paint used to beautify homes but also kills insects especially malaria. Heard its safe for humans and large pets and also WHO approved. They ve bin advertising everywhere. inesflyafrica.com.ng. im not endorsing only sharing news.

    There are insecticide treated nets and insect repellents pple can buy but wont. protect yourselves
    You see people up and die one day and nigerians will say its juju. Malaria kills, Protect yourselves and loved ones especially little babies
