Health Agent Vaccinating a Child
In Mali the rainy season has just ended. The rainy season is one of the worst times for diseases -- such as Malaria -- in Western Africa.
But the Ouelessebougou Alliance is determined to help limit the number of preventable diseases, especially among women and children.
Last year alone, the Alliance gave over 4,300 life saving vaccines to women and children in over 100 villages.
Our vaccines protect against 9 diseases and cost less than $15 to fully vaccinate one child.
As we enter the dry season, the Alliance continues to work in partnership with the government and village health workers to educate villagers on these diseases, the importance of vaccinations, and facilitating the vaccines.
We are proud of the villagers and the work they have been doing to ensure their families and villages are safe and healthy!
