Maroua: Traditional Rulers Lead Fight Against Malaria

The auxiliaries of administration are helping government to reach thousands with messages that could kick the disease out of the Far North Region.

Traditional rulers are currently at the centre of the fight against malaria in the Far North Region, thanks to campaigns government and its partners are implementing in the region.

The traditional rulers are involved in the distribution of treated bed nets and communication strategies put in place by the regional delegation for public health and the United Nations Children’s Fund, UNICEF.

During the commemoration of the 11th Edition of the World Malaria Day in the region, the traditional authorities, drawn from Maroua I, II and III Sub Divisions were brought together in a round table conference.

Their capacities were reinforced to educate their respective communities on the effective use of treated bed nets to prevent malaria-spreading mosquitoes from accessing especially pregnant women and children while they are asleep.
