Social marketing for malaria prevention : increasing insecticide treated net coverage : Comercializacion social para la prevencion del paludismo : ampliar la cobertura de los mosquiteros tratados con insecticida (Spanish)

Malaria infects over 500 million people worldwide each year. The most vulnerable are infants, young children, and pregnant women. Pregnant women are vulnerable, their immunity to malaria is decreased during pregnancy, especially the first and second pregnancies, while young children have not yet developed immunity to malaria. The World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) estimated malaria caused more than 3,000 child deaths a day, mostly in Africa in 2003. Insecticide treated nets have been shown to effectively reduce malaria mortality on average by 18 percent among children in Sub-Saharan Africa and increase the proportion of improved birth outcomes. WHO promotes increasing insecticide treated net coverage and the Abuja Declaration signed by African leaders at the African Summit on Roll Back Malaria in 2000 called for protecting 60 percent of children with insecticide treated nets by 2005.
