The status of health across the African continent is threatened not only by poverty, but also by civil wars and natural disasters. With new leadership and peaceful transitions slowly emerging, infectious diseases like malaria—a bigger killer than AIDS—continue to cause needless suffering and to challenge the social fabric of the continent’s diverse nations. The AIDS epidemic has further devastated health systems and is decimating communities and the teachers and health personnel that support them.
MSH and its African partners have strengthened the capacity of public and private organizations to meet these challenges. With offices in fifteen countries, MSH works in cross-cutting areas to improve the systems needed to deliver health care effectively and to expand the cadre of trained health personnel needed to advance the health of the African people.
