Transcript of MEDITEL
Every year, an estimated
6.9 million children die
before they reach the age of five
Many deaths are attributed to preventable and treatable diseases like pneumonia, diarrhoea and malaria
Malaria Consortium has been implementing training in Mozambique, South Sudan, Uganda and Zambia
Train selected community members in the skills required to
diagnose, treat and refer
in serious cases
Most conditions can be readily diagnosed and treated by people within the community, including those with limited education and medical training
To date, over 14,000 community health workers have been trained
providing close to 3 million treatments for over 2.4 million cases.
