HACEY, Access Corporation To Combat Malaria Scourge In Nasarawa

In a concerted effort to eliminate malaria in Nasarawa State and across Nigeria, a non-governmental organisations, Hacey Health Initiative, with the support of Access Corporation, has donated no fewer than 500 mosquito nets to children and pregnant women in Uke community in the State.

The State Project Coordinator, Ololade Ogunnubi, at the outreach, emphasised the urgency of the project, particularly during the rainy season when malaria transmission is at its peak.

She added that the initiative is critical at this time to protect communities from the devastating effects of malaria.

The combined efforts of Hacey Health Initiative, Access Corporation, and the supportive community of Uke represent a significant stride towards eradicating malaria in the State.

Ogunnubi also disclosed that over 500 community members, including children, were tested for malaria by a team of skilled medical practitioners.

“Pregnant women and nursing mothers received mosquito nets to protect themselves and their families from malaria-carrying mosquitoes.

“Additionally, Information, Education, and Communication (IEC) materials were distributed to attendees to raise awareness about malaria prevention.

“Volunteers extended their efforts beyond the palace grounds, visiting homes and the local market to educate the community about effective malaria prevention strategies.

“This door-to-door and market outreach ensured that the message of malaria prevention reached a broader audience,” he stated.
