The Director United States Agency for International Development (USAID), Michael T. Harvey, Friday announced the donation of nearly four million insecticide-treated bednets to Cross River and Ebonyi States.



The donation was part of the U.S government?s commitment to malaria prevention in Nigeria.

According to a statement issued by the U.S embassy in Abuja, the cost of the bednets, including transportation from the factory to eventual households, is valued at 2.8 billion naira ($14.6 million).
USAID will work closely with Nigeria?s National Malaria Elimination Program and States Malaria Elimination Programs.

Nine other states will also receive bednets in the coming months.

Harvey said, ?Bednets bring prevention directly into every Nigerian home. It is up to families to hang them, and sleep under them daily to protect themselves and the most vulnerable, especially pregnant women and children under five.?
