Bringing health care closer to the malaria fight
Jeanine Vavisoa is in charge of the community health center in the village of Vohidrotra, Madagascar, which provides treatment for malaria and other diseases. Around 65 percent of the population in Madagascar lives in rural areas. For a patient suffering from malaria, having a health center within walking distance can mean the difference between life and death. With Global Fund support, the country aims to reduce malaria-related deaths to zero by the end of 2017.
