The grandchildren of Esther Ayoo, a resident of Adit Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) Camp in Minakulu, Northen Uganda, lie under a mosquito net in preparation for bedtime. Different NGOs, including AFFORD, a USAID funded Health Marketing Initiative, give free nets to the camp residents who cannot afford to protect themselves against malaria. The nets keep off mosquitos which spread malaria parasites. © 2007 Gilbert Awekofua, Courtesy of Photoshare
