The increasing number of mosquitoes in camps for displaced people in Central Darfur is causing malaria infections to rise.

The coordinator of the camps for the displaced in the state spoke about the deterioration of health services in an interview with Radio Dabanga. Mosquitoes can easily breed and spread in the camps' environment.

“This spread has led to an increase in malaria among the displaced people. The Ministry of Health has taken over the provision of services after the expulsion of organisations, but is not performing its duty well,” the coordinator said.

He demanded that the Ministry perform its duties better and deliver good health services in the camps.
