Malaria deaths reduced by 63%.

He said the program has made a great achievement and their target is to further reduce the deaths that result due to Malaria.

“For the past six years we have reduced deaths due to Malaria by 63 percent which is a good progress and we are looking forward to further reducing the deaths,” he said.

He explained that it has not been easy for the organisation to come this far but the hard working spirit that they put in first made them to reach this point.

According to him, deaths that occurs due to Malaria can be controlled if patients are tested in time.

He went on to say that for the past years, Malaria has been considered as a deadly disease due to lack of medical knowledge and proper medicine for the patients.

He therefore pledged that his organisation will continue working hard by putting more efforts as well as resources in the fight against deaths that occurs due to Malaria.

  3. Previously ppl were prescribed with malaria drug even being tested negative, basing on symptoms and signs. Currently only malaria positive registered patients are given the drug. The 64percent reduction is much dependent on the way they are registering the cases not much on the prevention measures………my opinion.
