Why Osana?

What's the Problem?

Malaria. Most people have heard of it, most people do not know how deadly it really is. A child dies EVERY MINUTE from this vicious virus. That’s 1,300 kids who lose their lives to a mosquito bite every day.  There were about 216 million cases of malaria and an estimated 655,000 deaths in 2010, According to the World malaria report in 2011. Most of these deaths occur among children and pregnant women living in Africa.

World Map

In many of the warm temperate climates, Malaria is a severe health problem that is killing people every single day. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) believes there are 300-500 million instances of malaria every year, and more than 1 million people die from it.

The problem is very serious. In certain parts of the world, mosquitoes that carry malaria have developed resistance to insecticides. In addition, the parasites have developed resistance to some antibiotics. These conditions are making it extremely difficult to control both the rate of infection and spread of this disease.

In the world right now, the two largest causes of death in children in underdeveloped countries are diarrheal disease and respiratory tract infections. A huge revelation is that, according to the CDC, “Handwashing can prevent about 30% of diarrhea-related sicknesses and about 20% of respiratory infections (e.g., colds).” Simply providing soap to those in need allows them to wash and fully cleanse, which makes a huge overall impact in those areas.

Washing Hands

Osana is working through education and global partnerships to help stop preventable mosquito-borne illnesses and sanitation related sicknesses.
