We started by adopting the village of Tagdoumt to teach them the essentials of malaria prevention–treating standing water and buildings, distributing mosquito nets and training them in the use of Artemisia tea as a preventative. In 2019-20 Tagdoumt, a village of 3,000 lost 40 people to malaria. Since our program, a year later, there have been no new deaths. With the success of this program we now hope to expand it to other communities.
