Through a system of community water management activities, we help ensure affordability of water for consumers and the maintenance of water infrastructures.

We also assist local administrations to plan and implement the system in their jurisdiction.

“Previously, I wasn’t confident enough in some aspects of my work, like management of fever in pregnant women, and determining fetal age and position. Thanks to the formative supervision visits I have received, now I can confidently conduct physical examinations and manage fever in pregnant women, in addition to correctly filling in Antenatal Care patient registers. I look forward to continued support in the future.” These are the words of Luzia Camba Glória Vungo an antenatal care nurse who works in the Gasolina health facility in the municipality of Chitado. Her health facility is 15 kilometers from the provincial capital of Saurimo, Lunda Norte province.

Diagnosing malaria in a timely manner remains a significant challenge in Angola. According to the Plano Nacional de Desenvolvimento Sanitário 2013-2025, only 45% of the Angolan population have access to health units. Of these units, less than 40% have laboratory capacity—and those with capacity are often poor quality. To effectively combat malaria and save lives, it is essential to increase malaria diagnosis coverage and the diagnosis capacity of existing laboratories.
