Ouch! Those Needles Hurt

Posted by on May 2nd, 2017 with Comments Off on Ouch! Those Needles Hurt

Prevention of disease and timely treatment should one of our children get sick is something we believe in and act on. A vaccination clinic for typhoid and de-worming was recently held at Stand Tall. A government sponsored nurse came to the school and vaccinated all of our children over 13 years of age.

We will also soon be training our staff in testing for malaria. A rapid detection kit for malaria has been developed that diagnoses and treats malaria quickly and effectively so that within hours a child is treated and can return to school. This is a huge improvement over the typical absence of 7 to 10 days with traditional diagnosis and treatment.
