Ministry of Health has rolled out Larviciding as part of the activities to EndMalaria in Uganda.
This was launched in Kabale District by the Minister of Health, Dr Jane Ruth Aceng, this morning.
Larvicding kills the young stages of the vector in the breeding sites thus reducing population of mosquitoes.
Uganda is among the 10 high burden countries for malaria and accounts for an estimated 4 per cent and 3 per cent of the global number of cases and deaths respectively, despite positive trends realized over the past decade.
Malaria continues to kill and prevent people especially children, from reaching their full health potential, thereby calling for more strengthened and concerted efforts and interventions to curb the disease.
