Beating Malaria For Good

Date Posted: 15/05/2018

The small island paradise of Sao Tome and Principe is showing Africa how to beat malaria, read on to find out how.

The small island paradise of Sao Tome and Principe is showing Africa how to beat malaria. This is amazing news, it’s great to hear that one of our West African neighbours is doing so well in their fight against malaria. They’ve shown how it’s possible to reduce infection rates drastically with resources currently available: no new vaccine or drugs, read the full story here.

Globally malaria incidence has been falling though nothing like a quickly as in Sao Tome and Principe. Since 2014, they have had zero malaria deaths, making it the only country in sub-saharan africa to maintain that achievement for several consecutive years. Malaria prevention is something we at PWA are passionate about, we’ve conducted several pilot projects since 2016 and this year have been externally funded to roll this out across multiple communities. The work will take place in July and August so there’s still time for you to apply to volunteer with us in Ghana or donate funds to help add to the work.

You can be part of helping Ghana beat malaria!
