Health & Livelihoods
Diseases like malaria and HIV disproportionately affect people living in poverty. While being poor makes individuals and communities more vulnerable to the disease, its direct and indirect costs can also cripple economic vitality, and have lasting detrimental effects on local livelihoods. LWR orks both to educate people about malaria and other diseases of poverty and to improve their economic situation so they are able to access health care services. By improving health care access and availability and ensuring proper use of preventive measures like bed nets, LWR is helping stem the tide of malaria and other devastating diseases.
