Field Photos: Malaria Hang Up Campaign, SW Uganda

by Katie Carroll | Mar 25, 2014

Today is the first day of a three day malaria hang-up campaign at Nakivale Health Center II in Nakivale Settlement, SW Uganda!

Village Health Teams (VHTs) made up of MTI volunteers spent all day yesterday being trained on how to hang mosquito nets and how to tell the families how to use them. 

There are 2 VHTs per community.  Today (and for the next two days) they are taking mosquito nets to the communities where they live and work in to distribute the nets and hang them with the families, one-by-one.

Thank you for your support of our Africa programs.  You make this possible!

VHTs gather at the health center to get t-shirts, final instructions, and thank you from the Uganda Office of the Prime Minister, rep from UNHCR, and MTI Africa Program Manager Trina Chase.
