Patrick Ocaya, the district operation supervisor in charge of mosquito nets distribution says a validation exercise conducted captured 363,632 people as beneficiaries, an excess of 25,454 people above the micro-planning figure.
According to the Ministry of Health guidelines, each mosquito net is planned for two people and a family unit can get up to six mosquito nets. But Rose Alado, the district representative for People with Disabilities in Serere says that the exercise is uncoordinated and that some of the residents received fewer nets than planned.
Speaking at the press briefing, the Primary Health Care State Minister, Dr. Joyce Moriku Kaducu, said the distribution of nets for wave 1, 2 and 3 in Northern and Eastern regions has been completed, adding that they have also completed registering the households in wave 4 and 5. She explained that wave 4 has been subdivided into wave 4a and 4b.
