The World Health Organization (WHO), estimates that about half of the world’s population are at risk of contracting malaria, with approximately 90% of all global malaria cases and 91% of malaria-related deaths found in sub-Saharan African nations such as Ghana.
The Ghana Health Service (GHS), with support from National Malaria Control Programme (NMCP), UNICEF, and other partners, will begin a household mass distribution of Long-lasting Insecticidal Nets (LLINs) in the Western North Region.
However, the President of Sefwi Wiawso Traditional Council, Katakyie Kwasi Bumagama II, has warned the general public to use free mosquito nets appropriately but not for needless purposes.
He appeals to Ghanaians to take advantage of this opportunity and allow themselves to be registered to benefit from the long-lasting Insecticide Treated Nets (LLINs) exercise.
His Royal Majesty tasked the general public to politicize this government initiative to fight against the malaria disease in the country.
This was made known when the Sefwi Wiawso and Western North Health Directorate visited and registered him at the Okogyeabour Palace.
On his part, the Western North Regional Director of Administration of Health, Mr Dome Godswill, stated that the directorate has only 7 days to complete the registration.
According to him, the health directorate has trained personnel who will go to houses for the registration which commenced on Friday, June 4, 2021.
Mr Dome believes every household within the region would be registered and urge everyone to avail him/herself to be registered so that when the time is due, they will get their share of the long-lasting Insecticide Treated Nets (LLINs).
