Nigeria continues to have a high number of active Malaria cases globally, accounting for over a quarter of all cases and deaths. The most common form of Malaria in Nigeria is Plasmodium Falciparum, which is resistant to many anti-malarial medications. The disease is caused by a parasite that is transmitted by mosquitoes, and symptoms can include fever, chills, and headaches.
The Nigerian Minister of Health urges Commissioners for Health to improve SMC and the insecticide-treated nets campaign implementation, in their respective domains in order to reduce the burden of malaria deaths in the country. The Nigerian Minister of Health, Professor Isaac Adewole, urged Commissioners for Health in all 36 States of Nigeria to improve the implementation of both the Strategic Management of Malaria (SMC) and the Nets (ITN) campaign, in order to reduce the burden of malaria deaths in the country.
An estimated 60% of the population is at risk of malaria.
Malaria is still a big problem all over the world, but this study has found a way to help lessen the effects of it; which is great news for everyone involved! Malaria is caused by a parasite that is transmitted to people through the bites of infected mosquitoes. The study found that if people are given a drug called Artesunate while they are still healthy, it can help lessen the effects of Malaria if they do get infected. This is great news, because it means that we may be able to help prevent people from getting sick in the first place.
The DG of WHO, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, recently called for increased investment in malaria-fighting tools and approaches, despite the fact that Malaria cases and deaths in Nigeria may have been heightened by disruption in access to effective Malaria prevention/diagnosis and Anti-Malarial treatment, aggravated by COVID-19. Malaria is a serious and potentially fatal disease that is caused by a parasite that is transmitted to people through the bites of infected mosquitoes. It is a major public health problem in Nigeria, where an estimated 60% of the population is at risk of malaria.
Produce substances that repel the mosquitoes that spread the disease.
Nigeria has made significant progress in the fight against Malaria, as evidenced by the fact that the country now has a SMC strategy in place. However, Malaria remains a significant problem in Nigeria, as evidenced by the fact that Nigeria accounts for 25% of the world’s Malaria deaths. One reason for this is that Nigeria has a high rate of Malaria transmission. In addition, many people in Nigeria do not have access to effective Malaria treatment. As a result, Nigeria still has a lot of work to do in order to effectively address the problem of Malaria.
Mosquito repellent plants can help to control Malaria in Nigeria, as they naturally produce substances that repel the mosquitoes that spread the disease. The National Institute for Pharmaceutical Research and Development, Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria, the Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Group of the Manufacturer’s Association of Nigeria, Traditional Medicine Practitioners, FMoH and Federal Ministry of Science and Technology should all work together to educate Nigerians about this.
The first Malaria vaccine provides hope that we are making progress.
The African Countries of Ethiopia and Kenya have found success in using mosquito repellent plants to control the spread of Malaria. These countries have been able to significantly reduce the number of cases of Malaria by using these plants. Additionally, the recent endorsement of the first Malaria vaccine provides hope that we are making progress in the fight against malaria. The vaccine has been shown to be effective in preventing the disease in children.
