Kyabazinga Takes Lead In Fight Against Malaria

William Wilberforce Kadhumbula Gabula Nadiope IV, the Kyabazinga of Busoga has decided to take lead in the fight against malaria.

The latest statistics from the Ministry of Health show a gradual increase in malaria cases. They confirmed it in 71 districts and a positivity rate of 58%. Due to this, the Kyabazinga says he is ready to champion the renewed efforts to fight against Malaria.

“Our approach will be to launch a nationwide campaign to mobilize and sensitize Ugandans against Malaria, advocate for prevention, massive testing, treatment and training on Malaria management,”

“Experts are advising the need to look at tackling the reservoir of malaria. The ministry should begin to address testing and treating asymptomatic cases by applying treatment. My prayer is that the ministry considers to urgently establish a blood bank in Busoga and other affected regions to be able to save lives,” he added.

Furthermore, Gabula says he accepted the request by partners and the Ministry of Health. They requested to have his personal involvement as a champion in the fight against malaria in Busoga and Uganda at large.

Consequently, he launched a drive to end malaria through early diagnosis and treatment, including identifying asymptomatic cases.

The Ministry of Health also says there is a big rise in Malaria in Busoga. 12 districts have also confirmed having a malaria outbreak.
