At least 1.3 million residents are set to benefit from about 700,000 treated mosquito nets in Kisumu County's Malaria Control Strategy.

The county Malaria Control Unit (MCU) last week completed a two-week registration exercise and community health promotion ahead of the distribution.

 Area MCU coordinator Lilyana Dayo said 1,321,910 people in 266,411 households had been registered in the ongoing anti-malaria campaign and would be issued with the nets.

"Every two people in a household will get one treated mosquito net, and we have managed to reach every part of the county," said Dayo.
