Education and mosquito nets against malaria in Kenya
In the Kenyan highlands, malaria is spreading faster than ever. Frequent rainfall has created ideal breeding condition for mosquitoes especially as temperatures at night rarely drop below 16 degrees Celsius. We take a look at how the World Health Organization is arming people against malaria by offering educational courses where participants learn how to detect the disease’s early warning signs. The “Kenya NGO’s Alliance Against Malaria,” or KeNAAM, is also jumping in, distributing mosquito nets, spraying repellent and building local health centers. A report by Holger Trzeczak.
