Summary

Malaria is one of Ghana's/Africa's most urgent health concerns. We tackle this disease by distributing mosquito nets, registering young children and their mothers for insurance and promoting awareness

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Malaria is one of Ghana's most urgent public health concerns--the disease is a leading killer of children under 5 and accounts for millions of dollars in lost productivity. Essiam, Cape Coast, where we will be working this winter, is an example of a community crippled by Malaria.

How will this project solve this problem?

We will tackle this disease by distributing mosquito nets, registering young children and their mothers for Ghana's government-run (yet often unaffordable) health insurance, and partnering with local health officials and schools to promote awareness

Potential Long Term Impact

Over 1000 people will have increased protection against, and awareness of, Malaria. Also the community's children under 5 will have access to health insurance, ensuring that parents now seek medical treatment for their young children.
