    Don’t we have mosquito nets manufacturers in Nigeria – Sen Ibrahim Oloriegbe questions N82 billion loan

    The fund, if approved, would be used to medically fight malaria in 13 states.

    According to Mahmuda Mamman, the ministry’s Permanent Secretary, the idea is reflected in the Malaria Program, which she defended before the Senate Committee on Local and Foreign Loans on Tuesday, October 26, 2021.

    The money will be used to battle malaria medically in 13 states, according to the official.

    The coverage will be available at 3,536 primary health care centres across 208 local government councils.

    “Don’t we have local manufacturers of mosquitoes nets and malaria drugs in Nigeria to patronise with the loan?” Senator Ibrahim Oloriegbe queried the officials.

    According to a World Health Organization (WHO) report, Nigeria had the largest number of malaria infections (27%), and the highest number of malaria deaths (23%), in 2019.

    To combat high P. falciparum malaria transmission, the WHO recently recommended that the RTS,S/AS01 (RTS,S) malaria vaccine be widely used.

    P. falciparum is the most lethal malaria parasite in the world, and it is most common in Africa, where it kills over 260,000 children under the age of five every year, with Nigeria being one of the worst-affected countries.

    The WHO’s advice is based on data from a trial program in Ghana, Kenya, and Malawi that has reached over 800,000 children and provided over 2.3 million doses since its inception in 2019.

    For the reduction of malaria disease and burden, the RTS,S/AS01 malaria vaccine will be given in four doses to children starting at the age of five months.
