a) Pregnant women being affected  with malaria.

He outlined from his presentation that malaria is high among pregnant women due to the following reasons;

1) most households don’t clear the water at the back of their bathhouse which end up breeding mosquitoes. 2) Most pregnant women do not sleep in the nets. 3) Most of these pregnant women are sellers at night. 4) Most do not visit health facilities early for treatment.
