Abstract:

Malaria is primarily a disease of the young and of the poor, many of them children who live in remote areas with no easy access to health services. Nearly 3,000 African children die of malaria each day, but the use of bed nets treated with biodegradable pyrethroid insecticide has proved to be highly effective in protecting them from malarial mosquitos as they sleep. The number of deaths among children under five has been reduced by a quarter in some areas. In Ethiopia, Fatuma Abdo knows all about malaria, having lost two children to the disease. We follow the heartbreaking story of how this deadly disease has affected her.
