Bed nets: The solution
Insecticide-treated bed nets are one of the most effective and inexpensive ways to prevent the transmission of malaria.
- One bed net can protect 2 people for up to 3 years.
- Thousands of lives could be saved every year if all children under the age of 5 in Africa slept under a bed net.
Malaria was eradicated in Canada over 50 years ago.
