Mozambique distributes mosquito nets for 390,000 families in south province

MAPUTO, Dec. 8 (Xinhua) -- Mozambique's southern province Gaza has launched a campaign to distribute mosquito nets for 390,000 families in the province for the prevention of malaria, the national Radio Mozambique reported on Tuesday.

The mosquito-borne infectious disease remains a threat to public health in the country, and cooperation and involvement of society are needed to beat the disease, said Gaza's provincial official Almeida Guilungue to the radio.

"The results of the campaign will only be achieved if there are combined efforts among civil society, public and private sectors in their planning, execution, monitoring and evaluation," Guilungue was quoted as saying.

The 15-day campaign followed an indoor spraying campaign for the 2020-2021 cycle starting October, before the rainy season began.
