The Ministry of Health launched the distribution exercise of free mosquito nets across the country. The exercise started in June 2020 and is expected to close at the end of the year.
So far, only 4.5 million mosquito nets out of the 27 million have been procured. The first batch will be distributed in 25 districts that were hit most by floods around Lake Kyoga and in districts with high prevalence rate of malaria.
