The Cross River State Government has concluded plans to distribute 2 million insecticide-treated nets to reduce the effects of malaria on residents.

The disclosure was made after the State and the United States Aids for International Development, USAID, representatives met to bridge communication gaps, commodity distribution, and accurate data collection across the 18 Local Government Areas.

Speaking at the meeting, the Director-General of the Cross River State Primary Healthcare Development Agency, Dr. Janet Ekpenyong thanked USAID for their consistent willingness to partner with the State to enhance medical programs that benefit women and children, adding that the distribution of the nets will have a positive impact on the livelihood of the State’s residents.

Dr. Janet further stated that the deliberate attempt to undermine the efficacy of insecticide-treated nets in rural communities and the perceived inconveniences claimed by urban dwellers have continued to add to the high figures of malaria-related deaths in the State.

On his part, Dr. Uwem Inyang, a Senior Malaria Specialist with USAID, said that they are open to collaborating with the Nigerian States in their various health programs and that in Cross River, they are willing to collaborate to ensure that all households and individuals gain unlimited access to insecticide-treated nets through the community-government approach.

He added that USAID will continue to support Cross River on “effective service delivery for optimum malaria-free society through the unlimited supply of Insecticide Treated Net Campaign Program, CHIPS programs in the State.”
