Key Messages
  • Malaria is a serious disease spread through mosquito bites. And if there are mosquitoes in your village then all members of your family are vulnerable to malaria- particularly children and pregnant women.

  • You and your community can protect yourself from malaria by doing the following:

    • avoiding water collection in and around your house;

    • by keeping the overhead water tanks lid closed;

    • using insecticide treated bed-nets;

    • spraying the indoors with recommended insecticides; and

    • wearing clothes that cover arms and legs.

  • Malaria is very dangerous for small children and pregnant women. Their low immunity can cause them to easily succumb to malaria. You must take extra precautions during pregnancy- including sleeping under an insecticide treated bed net to prevent severe anaemia and low birth weight babies.
Discussions and Frequently Asked Questions

 How is malaria spread by mosquitoes?

Key Response: Mosquitoes pick up the malaria parasites when they bite an infected person. Inside the mosquito the malaria parasites develop and reproduce. When the mosquito bites again, the parasites pass into the blood of the person being bitten.


 Why is it important to sleep under an insecticide treated bed net?

Key Response: Sleeping under an insecticide treated bed net is the most effective way of preventing mosquito bites because most mosquitoes bite at night. Treated bed nets repel or kill mosquitoes when they are near or land on the net.


 How can prevention measures help protect against malaria?

Key Response: All community members- particularly young children and pregnant women need to be protected against mosquito bites. Most mosquitoes bite at night and prevention measures including sleeping under a treated bed net, wearing clothing that covers arms and legs, and having regular spraying around the house helps prevent these bites.
