As follow up to the release of the National Malaria Anthem ‘Play your part’ the trio of 2Face Idibia, Sani Danja and Eve B are back with a social campaign tagged #NetNation.
The campaign seeks to drive conversations that will encourage individuals and nursing mothers to protect themselves from Malaria by using Mosquito nets and encouraging their friends and family to do same.
Malaria is the leading cause of death in Nigeria, with over 300,000 lives a year – more than 820 people every day!
In Play Your Part, the Malaria anthem that gives a nod to the National Malaria Eradication Program’s (NMEP) slogan, For a Malaria free Nigeria: Play Your Part, 2face sings that ‘Malaria-free is a possibility but warns that it will take a lot of effort from you and me. He reveals 3 simple steps to eliminate malaria in Nigeria:
“Sleep inside mosquito net every night
Treat malaria with ACT after test
ANC during pregnancy for mother and unborn child.”
These messages will be further highlighted creatively by the #NetNation campaign on social media platforms and will last for six weeks.
#NetNation and the National Malaria Elimination Programme (NMEP)’s song is supported by the USAID HC3 Nigeria Malaria Project funded by the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) and partners.
