UNDP's Support to Malaria

Zabihullah, a Tailor in Behsud district, near Jalalabad, sets up a bed net provided by UNDP/the Global Fund to protect his family against malaria.

 

“We were given six bed nets: two for me, two for my newly-married brother, and two for my parents,” said Zabihullah.

 

80% of Afghanistan’s malaria cases are in the east, which has more mosquitoes due to the humidity. The Afghan Ministry of Public Health, UNDP and the Global Fund are distributing 2.7 million bed nets and equipping 14,500 clinics with rapid diagnostic test kits and anti-malaria drugs.
