Mary Onyame is a 40 year old hairdresser who is suffering from malaria. She is a patient at the Manhean Health Center where she is undergoing treatment.
“I woke up one day feeling feverish and I felt like vomiting. I took some painkillers but my condition got worse at night. I came to the hospital the following day. I was tested for malaria which is important because many people think every fever is malaria. My test was positive for malaria. It is costing me to be here in hospital because I cannot work”.
What did it cost you, when you or a family member had malaria?
