ACCIH’s approach to improving population health focuses on 6 areas:
The sandfly vector (which lives in mounds pictured above) is responsible for leishmaniasis transmission.
We strengthen health systems through infrastructure development, providing medical supplies, training and advocacy.
At the Chemolingot sub-County Hospital, leishmaniasis patients are triaged, diagnosed and treated.
Central to disease control is community engagement through education.
We identify disease in the community through active case screening and surveillance.
We distribute food during severe famines to address high levels of malnutrition.
