Summary Malaria is primarily a disease of the young and of the poor, many of them children who live in remote areas with no easy access to health services. Most malarial deaths in Africa are among children. Nearly 3,000 die each day. But the use of simple prevention and control methods has shown startling results. Trials conducted in The Gambia, Burkina Faso, Kenya and Ghana, the use of bed nets treated with biodegradable pyrethroid insecticide have proved to be highly effective in protecting sleeping children from malarial mosquitoes. The results have been dramatic. In children under five the number of deaths in some of these areas has been reduced by a quarter. In Ethiopia Fatumo knows all about Malaria, having lost two children to it. Following her heartbreaking story of how this deadly disease has affected her, we learn how these new bednets can save future children and families in Africa
