The Paradox Of Using Mosquito Bed Nets To Fight Malaria In Cameroon

The latest distribution exercise is the third face after 2011 and 2015. In 2011 alone the government distributed about 9 million treated mosquito bed nets while in 2015 about 15 million nets were distributed and about 35 billion FCFA spent in the process.
However, most of the mosquito bed nets never reached their final destinations as some were confiscated by health workers while some families received more than they could use because of their relation with distribution agents.
