Planète Enfants & Développement, in partnership with AGIR, is conducting awareness sessions for families on malaria issues. Traditionally, in the unprotected areas of the country, people prefer to consult traditional practitioners. The population does not trust health workers, their diagnostic methods, or the medicines they use.ts prescribed. They don't even know what the proper treatment is.

Our information sessions allow for a direct encounter with these health workers and the population in order to establish open communication, trust and the possibility of care. At the end of the session, the outcome was very positive. The fears were heard. This activity allows to avoid the taking of abuse, to renew the links with the health actors, and consequently to reduce the number of deaths.

The women were very open and ready for change! Even the young passers-by were captivated by the workshop!
