Infectious Diseases Control

Ministry of Health
The Ministry of Health is committed to undertake all necessary interventions to control disease in align with its mandate to have a healthy and wealthy population.

Malaria
Malaria is an infectious blood disease caused by a parasite that is transmitted from one human to another by the bite of infected Anopheles mosquitoes. Malaria symptoms, which often appear about 9 to 14 days after the infectious mosquito bite, include fever, headache, vomiting and other flu-like symptoms. If drugs are not available or the parasites are resistant to them, the infection can lead to coma, life-threatening anemia, and death.
According to the 2010 World Malaria Report, nearly 44,000 people die from malaria every year in Uganda. Though preventable and treatable, the disease is the number one killer of children under the age of five.
The Government of Uganda approaches to reducing malaria include the following among others:

  • Indoor residual spraying,
  • Using insecticide-treated bed nets,
  • Prevention of malaria during pregnancy,
  • Appropriate diagnosis and treatment of the disease.
  • Strengthening malaria control activities

The government is equipping medical personnel and other district officials with the capacity to manage, plan, deliver, and monitor malaria control activities.
