The project is a health intervention strategy targeted towards sensitizing the people of jenta mongoro on malaria and alongside carrying out a full fledged sanitation in the community to help curb the issue of poor waste management which has made way for so many mosquito breeding sites and vectors of other diseases in the host community.

Just a brief detail on the community of interest, Jenta mongoro community is one amongst the three that makes up the Jenta Adamu ward located in Jos North LGA of Plateau state Nigeria. The community is which is densely populated has sanitation as one of it's major challenges, this is as a result of so many factors some of which includes the stagnant river where open defecation is practiced located some major boundaries of the community, lack of good water supply and a poor adherence towards sanitary laws aimed at keeping the community clean amongst many other factors.



This poor sanitation factor has also become a big challenge health wise for the people of Jenta Mongoro as mosquitoes have found these community habitable hence increasing the chances of diverse diseases spreading in the area with the inclusion of malaria .

The Jos Block Malaria project heard about Jenta Mongoro and decided to take this year's project there so as to make available to the people sensitization on good sanitation practices, preventive measures on malaria and as well get equipped with proper combating tools towards malaria eradication in their community.

It would amaze you to know that Jenta mongoro as a community has no single health facility not even a primary health clinic hence the questions about how they manage their health especially during outbreaks comes on board. This year the Jos Block Malaria Project is also targeted towards drawing the attention of other relevant government and non governmental agencies towards building a health facility for Jenta mongoro community, this would go a long way in helping  the community manage its health issues properly.
