The Federal Government and the Katsina State Government have agreed to join forces against malaria upsurge as well as the elimination of other health care challenges in the state.

 

The Minister of Health, Dr Osagie Ehanire, who said this during the launch of the Insecticide -treated Nets Mass Campaign in Katsina State, said the use of insecticide-treated nets has remained one of the crucial strategies adopted by the federal and Katsina state governments for the prevention and elimination of malaria.

 

He further said Katsina is one of the 14 states to benefit from the intervention in 2022 and that 5.2 million insecticide-treated nets will be distributed with the active support of the Global Fund through the Society for Family Health.
