Though largely preventable through the use of bed nets year-round, malaria remains the number one cause of child deaths in Senegal.
In a partnership program launched in January 2010, Tostan is working in collaboration with NGOs Malaria No More, Peace Corps Senegal, World Vision; the Senegalese Ministry of Health and 600 communities in Senegal to distribute over 76,000 bed nets in the district of Velingara, Senegal. The aim of the partnership is to provide bed nets for every household in the district of Velingara and to ensure they are used effectively for a sustained period of time. 150 villages have been reached so far!
