IRS (Indoor Residual Spraying)

In Bar Sauri where I work the percentage of malaria reaches up to 60%,.

There are two ways to fight malaria: treatment and prevention.

Indoor Residual Spraying is one of the most important way to prevent against malaria. Previous history indicates that IRS and distribution of bed nets decreased the malaria cases from 60% to 8%.

I felt lucky to participate in such important activity and I will leave you with the photos
