Nashon disclosed that partners involved in the project include Management Sciences for Health, Catholic Relief Services and National Malaria Elimination Programme, with funding from Global Fund Malaria Project.


He, therefore, called on residents to remain at home during the exercise and to give an accurate number of those living in homes visited.


Nashon gave an assurance that each house would be visited and urged residents to make use of the treated nets to protect themselves from mosquitoes, especially pregnant women and children.


He further advised them to strictly adhere to instructions before using the nets.
