This study looked on the use of mosquito nets among University of Ilorin students in order to reduce the threat of malaria fever. The study’s goal was to determine the use of mosquito nets among University of Ilorin students. A total of 150 questionnaires were distributed among students staying in the dorm during the 2010/2011 academic session to determine the utilization of mosquito nets among University of Ilorin students in lowering malaria fever threats.
Because of the school’s high enrollment spread, five faculties were chosen for the study. 30 questions were given to each faculty member in the hostels to elicit the information needed for this study. Based on the results, it was discovered that 71.25 percent of the respondents were female, indicating that a bigger percentage of the population was female. Also, at 68.8 percent, the Christian had a higher percentage than the Muslim.
Art, law, education, science, and engineering were designated as departments. Ten questions were also provided to students who were not a part of the study to test the instrument’s dependability. Chi-square was used to analyze the student’s results, and it was discovered.
The data was analyzed using chi-square with 0.05 degrees of freedom and alpha of significance. It was revealed that there is a substantial variation in the awareness of the cause of malaria fever among students at the University of Ilorin. There is also a substantial variation in the attitude of University of Ilorin students opposing the usage of pesticide bed nets.
According to the findings of the research, the government and various health organizations should educate people about the causes of malaria fever, and the government should also engage with NGOs to supply ITNs and distribute them to schools, particularly those in dormitories.
