The Federal Government, through the National Malaria Elimination Programme (NMEP), has partnered stakeholders in the Health sector to fight malaria.

NMEP’s National Coordinator, Dr. Perpetua Uhomoibhi, in a statement on Wednesday, said concerted efforts were needed to win the war against malaria.

She said: “The National Malaria Elimination Programme has made several concerted efforts in reducing morbidity and mortality rate due to malaria in the country through malaria vector control interventions, and a lot of milestones have been achieved through several interventions. Similarly, other disease vectors, such as flies, bugs, fleas and cockroaches, are being controlled in the country.

“In the bid to reinforce these efforts, the NMEP, the Public Health Department in the Federal Ministry of Health, in collaboration with Olomitutu Kalt Limited, is commencing a pilot trial of Aragon Insecticide for Malaria Vector Control in Nigeria. The trial is an open label, controlled, multiple application, multi-centre design to take place in Ebonyi and Niger states.”

Uhomoibhi said the objectives of the trial include gathering of baseline information on species composition, relative abundance, room resting density, human biting rate, and feeding status.

Other objectives, she added, include to determine the insecticidal efficacy of Aragon as an aerosol spray against malaria vectors in the selected communities and to determine the people’s perception and acceptability of Aragon insecticide for malaria vector control.
