Irene and Ida went to Sinde village to continue with the signs, symptoms and prevention of malaria. Ida started with a review of the previous lesson where she asked the members the different questions about the previous lesson. Later invited Irene to continue with the lesson.
Irene asked the community members some of the signs that are commonly related to malaria, ouma said high fevers, and headaches,vomiting, abortion in pregnant women and others then another member stood up to give the other different signs and so on as the discussion went on. Then after the active participation on the different signs and symptoms Irene clarified and made additions of other signs and symptoms.
Irene then asked the members if they had any questions on the different signs discussed before talking about the prevention. Matilda asked why pregnant women keep getting malaria irrespective of the treatment given? Irene answered the question giving details of how the malaria parasites hide in the placenta and cause re- infection even after treatment.
Irene then discussed the different preventive measures where the community members also encouraged each other to make use of the mosquito nets provided by the Government instead of keeping them, going for proper malaria treatment, pregnant women going for treatment and more as the community actively participated.
