Mrs. Uduak Imo Bob

Mrs. Bob originally trained in 1992 at a community center to care for pregnant women with regards to malaria prevention.   She was approached by the village head, after learning that she had been trained, to be a leader of training other women in malaria prevention.  Mrs. Bob then selected 14 other women in the village of Ikot Udo Esang to be trained by her and to be leaders in the fight against malaria.

Mrs. Bob and the other women go around house to house to record all the names of pregnant women.  Mrs. Bob met with them in their houses and provides them instructions and even treatment if needed- if they have malaria she gives them directions on how to get proper care.  She also teaches them how and why to sleep under mosquito nets and goes back periodically (about twice a month) to ensure they are using the nets.   She tends to visit the women in the morning, when she will most likely find them at home before going out to work on the farms to make sure she is having regular contact with them.
