At the core of these conversations was the idea of using Primary Care Networks and Community Health Promoters (CHPs) to combat malaria in high-risk and underserved populations.

Similarly, they discussed the support from PMI for the upcoming Mass Net Distribution Campaign.

This campaign will play a crucial role in further reducing the impact of malaria in the country.

The PS said Kenya has made remarkable strides in reducing the prevalence of malaria, a significant achievement in the fight against this disease adding that the Ministry of Health is actively looking into ways to build on these achievements.
