Malaria is one of the deadliest disease in the world estimated to kill 600,000 people annually. In Uganda 20 -23% of all illness is attributed to Malaria. Fortunately, malaria is both curable and preventable and the Ministry of Health in Uganda has come up with National Malaria Control Policy to guide stakeholders on treatment and prevention of Malaria. The policy calls for integrated approach that combines effective treatment of the sick and preventive activities with emphasis on use of insecticide treated mosquito nets.
The Role of Schools
Schools are well positioned to increase awareness about malaria treatment and prevention not only among the students and staff but also to the benefit of wider surrounding community. Schools can engage in a number of activities that support awareness including:
Offering seminars on control of mosquitoes that transmit malaria in collaboration with government officials
Working with nearby health facilities to sensitize community about treatment and prevention of malaria
Working with government and non-government actors to ensure access to and proper use of insecticide treated mosquito nets
Why prevention in schools
Preventing students from getting malaria is particularly important for the following reasons:
Young people vulnerable to malaria which accounts for 10 to 20% of deaths
Malaria often leads to severe illness leading to suffering and pain. Symptoms of malaria may include high grade fever, headache, pains, poor appetite, vomiting and sometimes convulsion
Malaria prevents children from attending school and it can jeopardize a child’s learning ability if neurological damage and anemia is sustained from repeated malaria infections

The biggest challenge in politics is preparing the speech. While in foam two, one of the aspirants walked onto the stage only to fall into shame after failing to greet the audience. “Give us sample,” shouted the students.
