What We Do

Various infectious diseases still exert a significant burden across the continent of Africa.

Despite significant progress against malaria, death and disability from the infection, it remains very high, especially in some poor and less developed nations, such as Malawi, Nigeria, Kenya, South Sudan, etc.

SFDP is highly dedicated and committed to fighting infectious diseases across the continent of Africa. Our efforts include one-on-one support for clinical care, nutritional support, community health education, and assessment.
