The First Lady, Mrs Rebecca Akufo-Addo has called for judicious use of available resources in the fight against malaria as donor support towards eliminating the disease continues to dwindle.
According to her, “mobilising domestic resources has become more urgent now than it was before” if the country was to achieve its targets in controlling the malaria burden.
Mrs Akufo-Addo was addressing a durbar yesterday to mark this year’s World Malaria Day in Somanya in the Eastern Region.
She said the tendency where we celebrate our successes and then go into inertia is unacceptable.
She encouraged stakeholders to continue with the fight against malaria and not to be complacent since malaria is not complacent and would attack and attack again if not fought well.
The First Lady said the only to defeat malaria is to act decisively, consistently and relentlessly in a coordinated and efficient manner.
