The Chasing Malaria Program is a collaboration between the Honiara City Council, Ministry of Health & Medical Services, World Health Organization and Rotarians Against Malaria. The project has been mapping malaria cases from public clinics in Honiara to better understand, track and respond to malaria in the city. Last week from the 4th to the 10th of August a total of 97 positive cases in Honiara were recorded, the top 5 hot spot communities are: Mbokona, Burns Creek, Papaho, Rove & West Kola. Our response team will be visiting these 'hotspot' communities this week to carry out indoor residual spraying, testing and treating malaria cases and conducting vector surveillance within the communities. Communities please look out for our response team. Stay safe from malaria by: a). Sleep under a mosquito-net b).
