Commemoration of Southern African Development Community (SADC) Malaria Day aims to create awareness about malaria and mobilise the community to participate in the malaria control programmes.
A high level for the achievement of effective results in the initiatives undertaken to fight malaria can be reached if the community is mobilised through health education to:
- recognise signs and symptoms of malaria
- provide more home based treatment
- seek treatment when they become ill
- use personal protective measure
