The Ministry of health is set to rotate chemicals n northern Uganda and the Cattle Corridor in an effort to eradicate chemical resistant mosquitoes.

According to Dr Jimmy Opigo the Programs Manager at National Malaria Control program, Mosquitoes have become used to the chemicals especially in the cattle corridor as some chemicals meant for mosquitoes are already being used by some farmers to spray their animals.
Opigo adds that in cases where the chemicals cannot be rotated, they will be forced to enhance them to match the resistance that has been developed by the mosquitoes.
