Problem to be tackled

Ghana: Malaria remains the number one cause of illness and death accounting for about 38% of all hospital admissions and 33% of all deaths in children under five.

Zambia: HIV remains a major public health issue, people are dying; leaving orphaned children behind, communities are fragmented and healthcare systems are under immense pressure; all having detrimental effects on society and the economy.
