* UNICEF: Mass Distribution Of Insecticide Treated Bed Nets Near Kisangani, DRC

On the banks of the Congo River in the northeastern Democratic Republic of the Congo, a continuous struggle rages against malaria. In Kisangani, the capital of Oriental Province, the tropical climate, abundance of water and flora leave no place safe from mosquitoes and the deadly disease they carry.


In the Neighbourhood of UMOJA on the outskirts of town, Mikala Mobanda has brought her son for a malaria test.


SOUNDBITE (Lingala) Mikala Mobanda, Mother: "Sometimes he is hot sometimes he is cold, with fever. He is not eating well; his temperature just keeps getting higher. I am pretty sure it's malaria again."


A fifteen-minute blood test confirms the disease suffered by more than half of visitors to the UMOJA clinic. 180,000 children never recover from the disease and die.


SOUNDBITE (French) Leon Faliala, Nurse Umoja Heath Centre, Kisangani: "The serious illness related to malaria is often anemia. Severe anemia, which may require eventually a blood transfusion, can lead to very serious complications, including death."


Nearly 2000 kilometers downstream on the Congo River, the culmination of a year's worth of planning by UNICEF is underway. 1,300 tons of cargo are launching from the CELCO Port in Kinshasa. Eight barges carrying close to 2.2 million insecticide-impregnated mosquito nets are being pushed upstream towards Kisangani. 5.1 million treated mosquito nets in total are destined for the Orientale and Maniema Provinces.


SOUNDBITE (French) Pierrette Vu Thi, UNICEF Representative DRC: "Each household will receive about 3 mosquito nets. In a province such as Oriental Province, which is about the size of Spain, and whose road network is practically non-existent, you have to use the rivers, the bad roads…it is going to be a huge logistical challenge. And then, after this huge challenge, we have to be sure that these families will use these mosquito nets. For this there is a whole social mobilization plan that will happen."


Operational costs for UNICEF are estimated at US $10 million. UNICEF has partnered with the World Food Programme, and the UN mission in DRC for logistical support with other significant support from UNITAID.


The trip up the second largest river in the world is expected to take more than three weeks. UNICEF is currently preparing a mass mobilization campaign at the household level in partnership with the major religious bodies here in the DRC, to complement the distribution, which will launch in early December 2009.
