On May 22, community representatives and religious leaders, amongst many others, will gather in Pakour, Senegal, to publicly declare the communities’ commitment to use mosquito nets in every household in order to prevent malaria. This decision follows the communities’ participation in awareness activities and education programs on health promotion and malaria prevention, organized by Tostan in partnership with Malaria No More, Peace Corps, World Vision, and the Government of Senegal. The aim of the partnership is to provide bed nets for every household in the district of Vélingara and to ensure they are used effectively for a sustained period of time.

Stay tuned for further news of the declaration, as Tostan staff will travel to attend the declaration.
