Supplying bed nets to combat malaria in Kenya /
- 19 million bed nets supplied /
- 40% reduction in recorded malaria cases /
Simple preventative measures can have outstanding results
Since 2008, Crown Agents has procured and delivered millions of insecticide-treated bed nets to communities across Kenya. The success of the programme, as evidenced by a 40% reduction of recorded malaria cases in the country, has relied on our approach of targeting groups most vulnerable to malaria, such as pregnant women and children under five.
Leading the way in the fight against malaria
Kenya is now one of the leading countries showing the impact of insecticide-treated nets resulting from extensive marketing and education that has encouraged a large proportion of the population to sleep under a treated net.
