Malaria: Kano to distribute eight million treated nets
In collaboration with development partners, the Kano state government would distribute insecticide-treated nets across the 44 Local Government Areas of the state.
The Commissioner for Health, Dr. Aminu Tsanyawa, disclosed this while briefing newsmen in Kano.
Tsanyawa said the ministry and National Malaria Elimination Programme, in collaboration with Society for Family Health, were currently implementing the 2022 ITN Campaign in Kano.
He said that over eight million insecticide-treated nets would be distributed to households across the state during the campaign.
“The 2022 campaign intends to distribute Insecticide-treated nets door-to-door to all households free-of-charge across the 44 Local Government areas from 10th to 22nd November 2022.
“Already over 20,000 ad-hoc personnel have been trained, and over 90 percent of the nets were delivered to over 3,600 designated distribution hubs across the 484 political wards in the state,” he said.
The commissioner further said the Kano state ministry of health, in collaboration with the National Primary Health Care Development Agency, partner agencies, and other key stakeholders, would vaccinate children from nine to 44 months with the Yellow Fever Vaccine across the state.
Tsanyawa commended Governor Abdullahi Ganduje for his government’s efforts to improve the health sector in the state.
He lauded the commitment of the National Primary Health Care Development Agency and development partners for their support in improving the healthcare sector in the state.
