Question # 1
Do you close the doors and windows
in the evening and in the morning?
Anopheles mosquitoes enter the house between 17:00 and
21:30 and again in early hours of morning. They start biting by
late evening and the peak of biting activity is at midnight and
early hours of morning.
By keeping the windows and doors closed between 17:00 and
22:00 and again in early morning, one can prevent the entry of
these mosquitoes into the house.
Question # 2
Do you wear long pants and
a shirt with long sleeves?
To avoid malaria infection, cover your skin with clothing.
Long sleeved shirts.
Question # 3
Do you have a mosquito net
over the bed you sleep in?
Analyses from Haiti show that insecticide-treated bed-nets
are effective in preventing malaria where vectors primarily
bite indoors and late at night.
Insecticide-treated bed nets are among the most powerful tools
against malaria. The nets work in 2 ways:
1. They block mosquitoes from biting people while they sleep.
2. The insecticide kills mosquitoes that try to penetrate the
webbing and fail.
A trial in the Bolivian Amazon showed that episodes of malaria
were reduced by 80% among persons using insect repellent and
insecticide-treated bed netting.
Bed nets are easily installed over beds or floor mats, can be
readily moved, protect one or more persons, provide some
warmth and enhanced privacy at night, are generally
affordable, and can last for years with proper care.
Question # 4
Do you impregnate bed nets
and clothes you wear?
Bed nets and clothes can be impregnated with an insecticide
to increase their effectiveness in protecting children.
The process of impregnating and hanging the nets is not complicated.
Studies have clearly demonstrated that motivated community
members can be taught to use bed nets properly and to do the
impregnation, drying, hanging, and maintenance with only modest
assistance from local governmental health staff.
There is medicine to treat malaria. There is also medicine
which makes it less likely that you’ll get the disease.
