"Issufai had had fever for three days and had had several seizures, but eventually the family took him to the health centre, which then sent him to the hospital with MSF transport. The test for malaria was positive and Issfai’s fever was over 40 degrees. One hour after the seizure stopped, he lay still on the bed with his eyes open and blank."
We were there to provide early diagnosis and treatment for malaria. We came equipped with rapid tests and the appropriate treatments. And most importantly we came ready to walk to where the people were dying from malaria.
