Ministry of Health has Wednesday on the sad note announced that a total of 162 people have been killed in 10 districts of Northern Uganda by a recent outbreak of Malaria in the region.

The revelation was made by the Director General Health Services, price http://dangerdame.com/wp-content/themes/genesis/lib/functions/image.php Dr. Jane Ruth Aceng while addressing journalists at the Ministry headquarters in Kampala.

The outbreak, seek http://centerforblackbelt.org/wp-includes/deprecated.php she said, adiposity was realized after an increased number of admissions and outpatient reports captured from different health facilities in the districts.

The districts that have witnessed the epidemic are; Lamwo with 7 deaths, Gulu with 14 deaths, Kitgum- 22 deaths, Oyam- 26 deaths, Agago-11 deaths, Apac- 13 deaths, Amuru- 4 deaths, Kole- 22 deaths, Nwoya- 12 deaths and Pader with 4 deaths.

Dr. Aceng confirmed that the cause of the outbreak was the cessation of the Indoor Residue Spraying (IRS) which resulted into proliferation of the vectors and increased bites in a population with reduced immunity to Malaria.

The minister revealed that all the districts witnessing an outbreak were the ones where IRS has been conducted over the past several years.

“However, since the onset of the outbreak, there have been a number of interventions by the MOH and partners to support the districts to investigate and respond to the Malaria epidemic,” Aceng said.

Aceng noted that the Ministry through the National Task Force (NTF) activated the Public Health Emergencies Operations Centre (PHEOC) to coordinate the response under an incident Management Team (IMT).

The Ministry of Health, working closely with partners has developed a National Response Plan to address the epidemic.

“The objective of the response plan is to rapidly bring the numbers of malaria cases to the pre-outbreak levels and to effectively manage malaria cases so as to limit the mortality and morbidity on the population,” Aceng observed.

She added that the Ministry is discussing with partners to conduct at least two spray rounds of IRS to quickly cut down vector density and malaria transmission.

Dr. Acheng has blamed the public for failure to adhere to the Malaria prevention measures which include consistently sleeping under an Insecticide Treated Mosquito net.
