A WELCOME MALARIA SUCCESS STORY
Kenya is controlling malaria without using DDT:
Deaths due to Malaria have dropped by almost half in Kenya, a new report says.Kenya has opted to use bed nets to control malaria. It's great that the effort is getting results.
The report by the Ministry of Health shows the annual death toll of 34,000 children has been reduced by 44 per cent to about 16,000.
In addition, the number of hospital admissions due to malaria has reduced by 50 per cent.
This decline has been attributed to massive scaling up in the distribution of Insecticide Treated Nets.
