Clip #14 – Malaria in Sierra Leone

MSF rural malaria programs in Sierra Leone. This is an excellent model using community health workers to treat malaria locally and quickly. With MSF training and providing this service, what does it do to long-term development and healthcare infrastructure? I think the training aspect is great. I hope there are linkages to local government to ensure the long-term supply of meds and required testing instruments.
