The district of Dadu, situated in Sindh Province, is currently facing a massive health crisis due to a concerning rise in malaria cases. Health officials and residents raise concerns over the gravity of the situation. 


There has been a notable increase in the incidence of malaria infections in the district. Some individuals experienced recurrent bouts of the disease. 

This pattern of recurrence is particularly alarming as it poses additional health risks and underscores the urgency of addressing the situation comprehensively.

In response to combat the spread of malaria, medical practitioners have been prescribing Primaquine tablets to affected patients. 

Regrettably, the availability of these essential medications has become a challenge due to shortages in local medical stores. This scarcity further increases the difficulties faced by patients and healthcare providers in effectively managing the outbreak.

The district administration's official statement has underscored the severe impact of recent floods, which have significantly contributed to the escalation of malaria cases in Dadu. The aftermath of these floods has created an environment for the breeding of mosquitoes. 

Given the gravity of the situation, immediate and coordinated efforts are imperative to tackle the health crisis in Dadu District. 

Health authorities are collaborating with relevant stakeholders to ensure the availability of medications and essential resources required to address the outbreak effectively.

Additionally, the administration is actively working on implementing mosquito control initiatives and public awareness campaigns to curb the transmission of malaria.
