Across Sub-Saharan Africa, the majority of people live in rural areas and often endure up to a day-long walk to the nearest health facility. In Malawi this is true for 84% of the country’s residents. Lack of access to healthcare puts millions of lives at risk, especially the rural poor who suffer from high-prevalence of preventable and treatable diseases and who are more vulnerable to climate and health shocks like flooding and COVID-19.
GAIA's cost-effective, community-based approach to rural healthcare combines mobile clinics and community health workers to bring basic healthcare services to where they are urgently needed. In close collaboration with the Ministry of Health, GAIA’s mobile programs efficiently and effectively fill gaps in the healthcare grid, reducing disease among hard-to-reach, rural populations, and providing preventative education and services.
