My Togo Friends have Malaria or Paludisme

My Togo Friends have Malaria or Paludisme
Lome, Togo West Africa

Paludisme is the French word for Malaria, NOT Malaria.
If you need a doctor, you need to know the word Paludisme.

1 in 15 people in Togo will get Paludisme or Malaria in English.
7701 - Togo 7701 cases per 100,000 people HDI 2005

728 - Ecuador 728 cases per 100,000
130 - Thailand 130 case per 100,000
15 - Philippines 15 cases per 100,000

I am counting….

1. Elaine - Cleaning lady in Lome, Togo
2. Brune - Girl from Atakpame, Togo
3. Paula - Manager of Hotel in Atakpame.

I am counting….

I know and have pictures of these three people, Malaria or the proper name for Africa Paludisme is easy to find. I personally know three people who say they are diagnosed by a doctor for Malaria.



I am counting….

I am counting… I visited this Hospital two times looking for mosquito nets.

TWO times, I have now gone to this Hospital two times, the last time on Friday, July 13, 2007. I tried to buy a Mosquito net here and on both times over a month apart, I was not able to buy a Mosquito net.



I purchased this Mosquito Net in Atakpame for 2000 CFA or 4 US dollars, now I have returned to the same place twice and they are out of them. The Hospital has none; the other store has them for sale at 4000 CFA or about 8 US Dollars.
