Community Based HIV/AIDS and Malaria Prevention is a project aimed at promoting safe birth control, prevention and control of vulnerable groups. The project will reduce infant and maternal mortality.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Chipata district with a population of 495,000 is endemic to malaria. With the impact of HIV/AIDS, there are higher cases of malaria incidences and episodes. People especially who are living with HIV/AIDS have low immunity and this increases infant and maternal mortality levels in the communities. Women who are pregnant and children under 5 years walk long distances to access medical facilities and are at risk of premature death. This project will benefit 30,000 people in the district.
How will this project solve this problem?
We will provide 10,000 long lasting to 4,000 mothers, 3,500 children under 5 years and 2,500 persons living with HIV/AIDS. The project will train 50 malaria control agents and 20 child growth monitors. We will procure bicycles and bicycle ambulances
Potential Long Term Impact
We will reduce infant and maternal mortality of 3,000 women and 4,000 children.We will increase the mobility of community health volunteers. Provide shelter for integrated health programs. Increase the knowledge levels in prevention to 400,000 people
