There is great need here, and we are in the midst of a malaria outbreak. The news that the medications from the United States are threatened is very frightening. Our patients are faithful at taking their ARTs, but they get sick with malaria and typhoid, TB, etc. If they cannot get the ARTs that keep them healthy, they will certainly begin dying of the infectious diseases so common here. Please do anything you can to let your elected representatives know how important the PEPFAR program is, and other programs that provide quality medications to Africa.
