Malaria remains a major public health issue in Niger and is endemic throughout the country. Malaria accounts for 28 percent of all illnesses and 50 percent of all recorded deaths. Children under five years of age account for about 62 percent of the burden of malaria. The National Malaria Control Program has focused its efforts on diagnostic tools for suspected malaria cases and effective use of antimalarial medicines for confirmed cases. Niger’s malaria program also supports the prevention of malaria in pregnancy, mass drug distribution for seasonal malaria prevention, and vector control interventions including consistent use of long lasting insecticide treated nets.

    In countries like Cameroon, Mali, and Niger, the rainy season means mosquitoes - and malaria.
