UNIBEN students sensitising members of their school community of the dangers of malaria.

Anti-Drug Misuse and Abuse Programme (ADMAP), UNIBEN chapter, recently embark on sensitisation programme to enlighten people living around its Ekiadolor campus of the dangers of not keeping their community clean and the cause of malaria.

Speaking with Campusnews, the chairman of ADMAP UNIBEN chapter, Osahenrumwen Edobor, noted that pregnant women are most vulnerable to malaria attack because their immunity is usually low, as a result of their condition, adding that mosquito treated nets have been given to all nursing mothers and pregnant women during the outreach, to keep them safe from mosquito bites.

Addressing nursing mothers, Tochukwu Okonkwo, a 500 level pharmacy student drew their attention to the need to clear their environments of stagnant water and cut overgrown grasses. She stated that these are the usual breeding sites for mosquitoes, which is responsible for causing malaria. He taught the recipients of the treated nets how to use the nets.
