New net found to kill more malaria causing mosquitos

More Powerful Mosquito Net Reduces the Incidence of Malaria

Date Posted: 15/04/2018

Read about a new type of insecticide that can kill mosquitos resistant to the current chemicals and PWA's volunteer programme to help with malaria prevention in Ghana, West Africa.

As an NGO working in the field of malaria prevention it’s great to see new developments that help reduce the incidence of this deadly disease. Check out this short video clip from the BBC discussing a new type of net that can kill mosquitos that are resistant to the current insecticide used in mosquito nets.

Partner West Africa have already piloted a malaria prevention programme in a number of communities with our partners the Ghana Health Service and international volunteers, you can read about our 2017 malaria prevention work here, and this year we are expanding this to include educational workshops alongside the testing, treatment and distribution of nets.

We are looking for volunteers with knowledge and interest in malaria to join our team throughout June and July 2018 to work with us to deliver this work. Contact us to find out more about our volunteering opportunities or if you have physical resources to donate. If you would like to support us financially you can make a donation of any amount quickly and easily through Charity Checkout.

Thank you and watch this space!
