In Angola, mosquito nets keep malaria out
After hearing worrying stories about fever outbreaks in nearby provinces, Sonia and her neighbours trekked several kilometres to a mosquito net distribution point. The nets they received will help the women and their families protect themselves from malaria and other mosquito-borne illnesses. With support from UNICEF, about 44,000 mosquito nets were distributed in communities and health facilities across Angola’s Bengo Province.
Sonia, the young mother of two is one of the beneficiaries of a mosquito net distribution held in Panguila Commune, which is about 21 km from the centre of Bengo Province in Angola. The distribution point was organized by health staff in coordination with community leaders. (More)
