  • Primary Prevention

  • The Malaria Awareness Plan

As organizations usually have their own HSE policy already in place, our disease prevention programs are customized to support these existing charts. We work in collaboration with organizations for their local and expatriate populations on malaria, tuberculosis, HIV and hepatitis, hygiene-related diseases, diabetes, and environmental injuries due to extreme cold or heat. Our social marketing initiatives are focused on promoting primary and secondary prevention.

Primary Prevention

An essential first step in disease prevention is to reduce the incidence of contracting diseases. Our primary prevention activities aim to encourage populations at risk to protect themselves from these hazards. This is done through regular education and training adapted to the risk and environment where these populations live:

 

  • Protection policy and protocol design
  • Awareness events
  • Hotline available 24/7
Secondary Prevention

When there is a suspicion that an individual has contracted a disease, secondary prevention allows for the detection and treatment of the disease or injury in its early phases, therefore greatly improving the chances of curing it. Our secondary prevention activities aim to assist populations at risk to self-diagnose and seek medical help as early as possible.

Malaria Awareness Plan

Malaria, despite the severe problems it causes around the world, is not a well-known disease in Western countries. Due to lack of knowledge, expatriates often are not aware of the risks and the potential seriousness of this disease.

24/7 Malaria Hotline

The 24/7 Malaria Hotline provides access to general and expert information on malaria by phone, 24/7, 365 days a year.

 

 

 

Malaria Diagnostic Kit

It is a rapid self-administered, qualitative test for the detection of Plasmodium Falciparum, Plasmodium Vivax, and 2 other malaria species (P.Malaria and P.Ovale). It allows for early detection and differentiation of malaria, ensuring better patient management and speedy recovery.

 

 

Malaria Awareness Events

In 2013, we hosted a special event in collaboration with the U.S. Embassy in N’Djamena, Chad. The half-day event gathered more than 1,300 U.S. Embassy Chad local employees and their families to raise awareness of malaria and how to prevent from contracting the disease.
