Les preuves scientifiques s'accumulent qui démontrent qu'en combinant la distribution de moustiquaires avec des campagnes de suivi menées au sein des populations par des volontaires formés, il est possible de réduire de manière significative l'incidence du paludisme. Associer aux programmes de distribution de moustiquaires des activités de soutien et de formation est essentiel pour venir en aide aux groupes les plus vulnérables (notamment les personnes qui vivent dans des endroits reculés, les réfugiés, les personnes victimes d'opprobre et de …
There is growing scientific evidence to demonstrate that combining mosquito net distribution with follow-on "hang up" campaigns carried out by trained volunteers in the community significantly reduces incidences of malaria. Combining distribution with follow on support and training is especially crucial to reach the most vulnerable groups (such as those living in remote areas, refugees, people affected by stigma and discrimination) who cannot be otherwise reached by mass education campaigns.

AFRICA: In eastern Africa, heavy rains and floods have caused loss of life and destroyed crops and infrastructure in several countries. However, prospects for current crops have improved. In southern Africa, cereal import requirements in 2005/06 (excluding South Africa) are estimated about 30 percent higher than last year due to substantially reduced harvests in Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe. South Africa, on the other hand, is estimated to have more than enough exportable surplus of maize to meet the import needs of the subregion.
