Malaria Protection Kit
Nets only protect (when used and maintained appropriately) approximately 8 hours of any 24 hour period. In reality, that may not be nearly enough protection for any infant and its mother. Results from a 2013 urban survey conducted by the Health Ministry in Ghana showed that even with 70 – 80% ITN coverage – Malaria is believed responsible for over 50% of neonatal deaths in Ghana Alone!
There needs to be more options for protection in addition to net coverage. The BTN malaria prevention kit contains a 30 day supply of repellent products and a RDT Kit ( Rapid diagnostic test ).
These products are deet and citronella free. They have been tested and FDA approved for use with infants. Use of these products will protect babies and their mothers during the remaining 16 hours (minimum) of unprotected exposure to mosquito bites faced each and every day after birth. The products are also culturally synergistic and engage parents proactively in the care and protection of their infants. All items can be paired with nets and/ or other preventative mechanisms.
