World Malaria Day is internationally observed on the 25th of April every year. It recognizes global efforts to control malaria.
With over 219 million cases of malaria in 2017, Sub- Saharan Africa has the highest share of the global malaria burden with Mosquitoes as the root cause of the disease.
This year, World Malaria Day focuses on the theme ‘Zero Malaria Starts with Me’. Meditol, alongside Osas of Joyful Joy foundation, will participate in a 3KM road walk. This event will take place on the 27th of April, 2019. The walk which start from the National Stadium Surulere to National Theatre, will involve all and sundry. There will be doctors and medical representatives, informing participants on the role that mosquito plays in the spread of the disease. They will also be educating participants how to prevent and cure malaria as the ultimate goal is to reduce the death rates caused by malaria. Hence, the celebration of World Malaria Day.
There is also the element of sensitization. Motorists and Pedestrians will be sensitized on the importance of accessing available interventions and free malaria test in their local communities.
