Protecting School Children Against Malaria

In a rural area of Yunnan, China, near the border with Myanmar, children whose families live far from their school stay overnight at the school during the week.  Global Fund support has enabled the school to equip the dormitories with insecticide-treated nets, to protect students against malarial mosquitos. In total, more than 200,000 nets have been distributed for free to people at risk of malaria in the provinces of Yunnan, Hainan, and Guizhou.
