Increasing the supply of good quality primary health care

Pillar 1

The problem

Health workers in some places lacked the right equipment or the right training to accurately diagnose malaria quickly and easily. Consequently, they were either turning people away without treatment or treating everyone without first diagnosing malaria, which can be just as dangerous.

The solution

We helped local health workers become more resilient by providing the resources and training they needed to increase their capacity. This resulted in improved diagnosis and treatment of malaria and other killer diseases, and ultimately, better access to care across the public and private sectors.
