Good healthcare is scarce in Pays Dogon. There are a number of government-funded health posts in ADI’s operating area and there is a small regional hospital in Sangha. The facilities are basic and a lack of staff, medicines and equipment is common. ADI disseminates information about health, healthy nutrition and disease prevention through education for women’s groups and through local radio. In addition, ADI also organizes practical mother and child care and contributes to malaria prevention.
