Summary

Thousands of lives will be saved when health clinics in 2 remote mountain villages have microscopes to test for malaria. Countless more will be saved when more villagers sleep under mosquito nets.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Malaria is epidemic all over South Sudan. The two health clinics we operate do not have any equipment to test for it. When patients come to the clinics with malaria-like symptoms, they get treated for malaria. If they are sick for another reason, the misdiagnosis can cost them their life. The misdiagnosis also contributes to the spread of drug resistance and unnecessary antimalarial drug shortages. At the same time, many people in the area do not sleep under insecticide-treated mosquito nets.

How will this project solve this problem?

The project will provide microscopes, slides, and other malaria testing supplies to the health clinics we operate. It will also provide insecticide-treated mosquito nets to villagers who need them, with an emphasis on children and pregnant women.

Potential Long Term Impact

The project will save thousands of lives. When parents live to see their children grow up, the health outcomes of the entire family improves. When children are able to grow up, they have a better chance to help break their community out of poverty.
