Sokoto Gets N3bn Items To Fight Malaria by johneewalker: 05:18pm On 6 Jun
Sokoto state government says it has received items worth N3 billion to tackle malaria in the state, even as it is working to achieve malaria control by 2020.


The state’s Health Commissioner, Dr Balarabe Kakale disclosed this while speaking on the ongoing fight against malaria in the state.

He said “the global target for the elimination of the disease is 2030, while the state is targeting the elimination of the disease by 2025.”

Kakale said the anti-malaria items which included three million insecticide treated nets, insecticides and sprayers, among others, were purchased by the state government in collaboration with the Federal Government and development partners such as USAID, Presidential Malaria Initiative and the Federal Ministry of Health.

The commissioner said out of the N3billion, the state government contributed about N 300million, while others contributed N 2.7 billion.

He explained that the first of the three components of the fight against malaria in the state was the purchase of seasonal chemotherapy drugs, for the free treatment of patients.

Kakale said the second component involves the residual fumigation and purchase of sprayers, insecticides and larviciding etc while the third component includes ensuring that people sleep under long lasting, insecticide treated nets, as well as rapid testing.

The cost also entailed the training of health personnel, operational costs and other assorted logistics, he added.
