Mosquitoes are dangerous species because they transmit number of diseases such as: malaria, dengue, West Nile virus, chikungunya, yellow fever, filariasis, tularemia, dirofilariasis, Japanese encephalitis, Saint Louis encephalitis, Western equine encephalitis, Eastern equine encephalitis, Venezuelan equine encephalitis, La Crosse encephalitis, and Zika .and most of the disease are fatal if they are not treated well.

Mosquitoes spread malaria which is number one killer disease in the tropical countries and no vaccine has been found yet, malaria kills more people than aids and tuberculosis combined together and this kind of salvage on countries which are affected make harder to attain economic growth plus improved standard of living.

Malaria has been one of the diseases which bothered me most during my child up to the time when I left Africa to study in abroad after my grade 12., the disease is cumbersome because it dehydrates, causing high temperatures and sometimes fluctuation of temperature, loss of appetite, sunken eyes dry mouth, bad breath, pale skin, chills, raised heart-beats, vomiting, diarrhea, headaches and sometimes stomach pains.

Malaria, as number one killers disease has become more of a global concern causing big Organizations such ; Gavi fund, Bill Gates foundation, WHO, UNESCO, USAID and others funding free mosquito nets, malaria medicine and assisting in setting up health care for all, mainly supporting the developing countries, but up to now there are no any information that mosquito repellents have been distributed and according to research mosquito repellents are as important as mosquito nets because it is impossible to move around with mosquito nets and some of the mosquito nets have been misused for fish nets, wedding gowns, scarecrow, nets for covering dishes and dry foods, in reference negative effects attributed to misuse mosquito nets is causing fighting malaria a big challenge!

Some of the Major Organizations In Battle Against Malaria include the World Health Organisation, The Global Fund, Against Malaria Foundation and Malaria No More.

Small Organizations too have come up such, Fight Malaria, NO-MO, Defeat Malaria, etc which are fighting tooth and nail to combat the deadly disease.

There are so many solution to the problem but to mention a few we have come out with:

Roperfree in collaboration with Fight Malaria came me with malaria campaign drive while giving out resourceful information plus free mosquito repellents during end of October and the beginning of November 2017 so that people of Kampala, Uganda can be educated and reminded that malaria is still dangerous and number one killer disease and many city dwellers benefited from the malaria campaign.

We provide the necessary nutrients for them to breed even more mosquitoes. While they’re going to town on our nutritious blood, they inject saliva into us as an anticoagulant; in other words, their saliva acts as a blood thinner that makes it easier to suck up more of our blood.

While malaria is still a global challenge but there is hope that one day we shall overcome malaria and reduce deaths which will spur the economies of developing countries to become buoyancy and self sufficient while reducing poverty.
