Case Study: Baron educates people on malaria, emergency transport systems and COVID-19 on air
Fwanta is a community in the Kabamba area of Serenje District, Zambia. In the past, many people in Fwanta who developed medical complications, be it maternal or malarial related, died because people wrongly interpreted the danger signs.
A turning point happened when MAMaZ Against Malaria at Scale (MAM@Scale) began working with this community and the Kabamba Rural Health Centre. They trained Community Health Volunteers (CHVs) on the management of severe malaria at community level through the administering of a Rectal Artesunate Suppository (RAS). MAM@Scale also provided an emergency transport system (ETS), in the form of a bicycle ambulance, to Fwanta. Baron Mupeta was one of the people selected to be trained as an ETS rider.
