Elhadj Diop became a malaria crusader in Senegal after the heartbreaking death of his daughter Ami nearly 20 years ago. “Ami’s death was a very difficult situation, because we didn’t know about this disease at that time. But it was at that moment I said, ‘I have a mission.’ It means reaching out to people, informing them about this disease and asking them to change their behavior. Elhadj Diop can’t fight it alone. It’s everyone, the whole village, the whole community.”
People like Elhadj are the frontline faces of the fight against HIV, tuberculosis and malaria. Join them in stepping up the fight through the Global Fund’s Sixth Replenishment this year.
