Sub-Saharan Africa are reported to have the lowest health and health-care systems in the world.
According to the World Health Organisation, Africa accounted for 88% of the 214 million new cases of malaria worldwide, and 90% of total deaths caused by malaria.
Our aim is to promote better health care knowledge and symptom recognition, improved preventive measures, and to instigate care-seeking behaviour. Limited access to healthcare and lack of health-seeking attitude contribute to the high number of undiagnosed cases. People need to understand the symptoms and causes of disease, so that they may recognise the need to consult a professional.

“Technology should go with important things like this because most of us can learn something.”
“Prevention is better and even cheaper than cure. Protect your environment and your environment will protect you against diseases out break and other infections. Also, I think the government need to put more emphasis on preventive health care systems in Nigeria or any African nation rather than spending billions on hospitals alone.”
