Uganda has the third highest number of deaths from malaria in Africa. Simple precautions such as sleeping under a net can prevent malaria and save lives.

We want to ‘malaria proof’ the hospital by installing window shutters with a mosquito proof mesh. This will help prevent mosquitoes entering the wards protecting hospital staff and visitors.

To hang an insecticide treated net over every hospital bed will provide additional protection for patients.

Each ward or clinical area costs approximately £750 - £850 to us to protect patients and nurses working night duty from malaria.
