Health officials investigate use of donated mosquito nets for fishing
GHANA – The Eastern Regional Health Directorate says it is investigating media reports that some villages in the region are using insecticide mosquito nets for fishing.
Regional Health Director Dr. Mc Damein Dedzo tells Joy News investigations are ongoing.
He admitted his outfit would have to intensify the education of residents about the purpose for which the nets were given to them, “and the benefit that they are supposed to derive from these nets”.
“We also learnt that they claim it itches them, but we don’t know the veracity of this assertion,” he remarked.
