    Re: Uganda. I’m wondering where the target population was located, how many nets were distributed, the total amount spent, were there any other partners, etc.

      We distributed more than 10,000 bed nets in Kitgum District, Northern Uganda. The nets were given to people living in internally displaced persons camps as a result of the conflict between the Ugandan gov and the Lord’s Resistance Army. In addition to bed nets, radio ads were broadcast in the region to provide education on the causes and symptoms of malaria. Lutheran World Relief’s implementing partner in the field was Lutheran World Federation.
