This project aims at providing a sustainable first line of defense in the fight against malaria for many desperate communities in rural Ghana. Currently, Ghana’s entire population is at high risk of malaria, which has been documented to be the leading cause of death among children in Ghana. Ghana is ranked 9th in the world in terms of total malaria deaths. CLT partnered with Ghana Sacramento Foundation (GSF) and delivered 600 mosquito nets to 7 rural clinics and health care facilities in 3 Districts (the Jaman South, Tain, and Jaman North Districts). Jointly, these facilities cater to a population of 700,000 people. Most importantly is CLT’s focus to assist with the government’s efforts to provide mosquito nets for use on hospital beds. Another focus of this program was to provide nets for the special project where pregnant women, newly born babies, and children (under 5 years of age) who are seen at these clinics and do not already sleep in mosquito nets, are selected and provided with the Long Lasting Insecticides Nets to be used at home. Our goal, among other objectives, was to increase the number of this special group of patients who sleep under treated mosquito nets.
