The United States Government through the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) jointly implemented by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) donated treated bed nets worth $4.5 million for distribution in Nasarawa State.
US in a statement disclosed that bed nets donated 1.6 million bed nets will be distributed in all local government areas of the State.
According to the statement, “The US government also provided an additional $1 million for logistics, including transportation of the bed nets, community mobilisation, and training of workers on how to distribute the bed nets. These nets and logistics support provided for their distribution are a gift from the American People to the People of Nasarawa State.
The statement reads in part: “ Every year, PMI supports two to three States in Nigeria with such campaigns. In 2017, PMI supported Kogi, Sokoto, and Adamawa.
“The aim is to increase access to malaria related health services, scale up access to malaria prevention within every household, especially for the poor, – and for sound and sustainable investment that can bring about great economic returns.
“Malaria is one of the leading killers of children and a leading cause of illness in Nigeria, particularly during the rainy season when mosquitoes multiply rapidly.
“Over 50 percent of US government funding for malaria goes into procuring and distributing insecticide treated bed nets, malaria diagnostic kits, and malaria medicines.”
