Innovative ways the youths can fight against Malaria in Wakitaka - a discussion

Status: Just started
Step: 
5

Many families have been affected by Malaria and HIV/Aids in Wakitaka. Having discussed the problem of Malaria, the youths are eager to get involved in fighting Malaria in their community.

Some few families consider buying a mosquito net for a mother who is pregnant. But after giving birth, the families rarely consider buying one for the children. Many parents use mosquito nets while their children do not. A net costs about 4$ sometimes 5$ and very few families in Wakitaka are using any measure to prevent Malaria.

In Uganda, malaria is the leading cause of mortality. It is endemic in 95% of the country, and forms 30-50% of the outpatient department attendance, 20% of in-patient admissions, and 9-14% of the deaths of admitted cases. (http://allafrica.com/stories/200811240746.html)

Malaria impacts negatively on the impoverished society where an estimated 25% of household income is spent treating the disease. That’s the kind of situation in most of our rural communities including Wakitaka. The little savings by families end up being spent on treatment for malaria.

Wakitaka youths would like to take part in the fight against malaria starting with their community but would wish Neighbors to help find ways in which the youths can get involved in the wipe malaria out of Wakitaka community.

The youths are not so much concerned about having bed-nets themselves, but would like to help especially the kids in Wakitaka. Find ways how the youths could get involved. Any educational resources, ideas where to get cheap bed-nets, community awareness campaign ideas, etc are welcome.

These are - preventing mosquitoes from contacting the human skin, and preventing the breeding of mosquitoes. To prevent contact with the skin, the most effective method is the mosquito net. As Lotte mentioned, efforts must be made to procure cheaper mosquito nets, so that these are abundantly available in every household for each family member, and not just the children alone. Apart from nets, other options are repellent creams, burning repellent coils to create smoke etc are also in use but these will have cost implications and are not as effective as a net. To prevent breeding of mosquitoes, there have to be community programs for regular spray of anti-malaria insecticides all over the inhabited areas, removal of all stored water in households and community areas where the mosquito larvae can breed, regular inspection by health groups to ensure all breeding areas are cleared off, and general education among all community members about the measures to be ensured to prevent breeding of mosquitoes in households and the community areas. Depending on the breed of mosquitoes in the area, they may bite during early morning and late evening and inactive during other part of the day and night, or they may be active during other parts of the day or night also. So a basic study of the mosquito feeding times could also be done in the area, and all community members could be warned to be extra vigilant during the affected hours.

Hi Emmanuel,

There are a few basic issues that need to be worked on for control of malaria. These are - preventing mosquitoes from contacting the human skin, and preventing the breeding of mosquitoes.

To prevent contact with the skin, the most effective method is the mosquito net. As Lotte mentioned, efforts must be made to procure cheaper mosquito nets, so that these are abundantly available in every household for each family member, and not just the children alone. Apart from nets, other options are repellent creams, burning repellent coils to create smoke etc are also in use but these will have cost implications and are not as effective as a net.

To prevent breeding of mosquitoes, there have to be community programs for regular spray of anti-malaria insecticides all over the inhabited areas, removal of all stored water in households and community areas where the mosquito larvae can breed, regular inspection by health groups to ensure all breeding areas are cleared off, and general education among all community members about the measures to be ensured to prevent breeding of mosquitoes in households and the community areas.

Depending on the breed of mosquitoes in the area, they may bite during early morning and late evening and inactive during other part of the day and night, or they may be active during other parts of the day or night also. So a basic study of the mosquito feeding times could also be done in the area, and all community members could be warned to be extra vigilant during the affected hours.

In the context of a HIV/Aids campaign, I came along a toolkit on how to organise a theatre play to raise awareness in the village. This might also be an idea for the Malaria problem. I once saw a documentary about a Malaria campaign in a community, and they actually had a group, going around and playing how Moskitos attack and how bed-nets can prevent the attack. It´s hard to discribe it like this, but I think the youths might maybe have fun in doing such a play. warm regards, Maria [teaser] => Hi Emmanuel, hi everybody, Following up the question by Lotte - at which point are the youths already educated about Malaria?

Hi Jennifer,

It's nice hearing from you once again; I was to get in touch with Mr. Pimundu James Mwanga on Wednesday last week after his return from the Workshop in Nairobi but couldn't make it due to a few things that I was sorting out. I will get in touch with him as soon as I get sometime aside.

Hi,

I think the idea we discussed some time ago was to start with about 50 nets to help the youth to organise a public event to sensibilize the community and to give out these first nets to families with small kids - Emmanuel correct me if this is wrong.
We have contacted various organisations and never got an answer. The organisation Ken mentioned was http://www.malariaconsortium.org/
MALARIA CONSORTIUM - AFRICA
Plot 2, Sturrock Road, Kololo, Opp Lohana Academy, PO Box 8045, Kampala, Uganda
Tel: +256 31 2 300 420, Fax: +256 31 2 300 425
Email: infomcesa@malariaconsortium.org

I or Emmanuel could try to call them. But I think what is even more important is to think about ways to teach the youth about Malaria prevention. Partnerships are always hard to establish, but maybe somebody has an idea. I also made a new blog post on our blog http://wakitakayouths.wordpress.com/2010/02/27/help-wakitaka-youth-to-co... (maybe somebody contacts us?

best,
Maria

PS: we are going to chat at 3pm Ugandan time today on scype or yahoo - anybody who wants to join is wlecome - just send me a message.
