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.

Solution

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

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.
