Overcoming COVID-19 is on everyone’s mind. When will things go back to normal? How could this have happened? What can we do to prevent future outbreaks from occurring? This is the first time since the 1918 Spanish Flu that the U.S. has experienced a pandemic of this proportion. Unfortunately, that is not the case for many other countries around the world. You may recall the Ebola outbreak of 2014 in West Africa.  The stories of schools being shut down, not being able to be with loved ones that were sick, the isolation required to prevent the spread all ring true to what we are experiencing today.

Malnutrition in Mali

Fifteen-month-old Bintou was first admitted to an outpatient treatment program at a community health center in Commune I of Bamako, Mali, suffering from malnutrition. Despite being monitored by the ALIMA and its local partner AMCP-SP (Medical Alliance Against Malaria - Population Health), Bintou was not gaining weight. The medical teams decided to hospitalize her and she was admitted to the Intensive Nutritional Rehabilitation Unit (URENI) at a referral health center in Commune I of Bamako. In this picture, a nutritional assistant gives Bintou therapeutic milk, which is specially designed for severely malnourished children suffering from complications, who require hospitalization.
