Relief from Malaria for Communities in Honduras

19 January 2017

Medardo Lagos plays with his child under a mosquito net in their home in Prieta, Honduras. “Thanks to the nets there are now fewer cases of malaria,” he observes, and others agree. In addition to the distribution of nets throughout the region, the Global Fund supports training of health workers to provide testing and treatment in their communities. Health authorities also organize frequent spraying of homes with insecticide in order to further prevent transmission of the disease.
