It is estimated that malaria kills more than 300,000 Nigerians — mostly children — each year. As part of the national campaign to provide two free long-lasting insecticidal bed nets to every Nigerian household, the Center's Malaria Control Program recently assisted in the distribution of 1.4 million nets in Plateau state. The goal is to reduce deaths from malaria by protecting people from being bitten by the vector mosquitoes. Join Dr. Frank Richards in Nigeria to observe this massive undertaking.
