Explain your project in details:
Malaria is a life-threatening disease caused by parasites that are transmitted to people through the bites of infected female Anopheles mosquitoes (WHO). "Any death from malaria , a preventable and treatable disease – is simply unacceptable," said Dr Pedro Alonso, Director of WHO’s Global Malaria Programme.Our project has two objetives : 1. To reduce by at least 70 percent the number of malaria illnesses and deaths among children in twelves remote rural communities in Gungu in 24 months . By: •Providing more than 150 000 families residing in twelves villages in rural Gungu with health education on how to ensure a malaria vector (mosquito)-free environment in their homes. •Build the capacity of 100 village health assistants to be able to accurately diagnose malaria as well as provide correct treatment to people especially under-5 children in rural Gungu . •Provide and distribute 200 000 insecticide treated bednets to families with under-5 children in rural Gungu so as to protect them from malaria. •Provide village health posts in Gungu with supply of essential antimalaria medicines for treatment under-5 children whose parents are too poor to afford malaria treatment costs. 2. To build the center for Malaria Control , research and prevention that will envision a world where no child will die from a mosquito bite.On this center ,our work will provide best evidence for policy and practice in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of malaria that will be important to make a significant contribution to international efforts to reduce the burden of malaria by influencing global practice and policy with high quality, relevant research across 27 high-burden countries in sub-Saharan Africa ,Greater Mekong Subregion and Americas.
