REINFORCING OUR IMPACT
ALIMA’s innovative operational approach and research programmes deepen the impact of our humanitarian work and help us save as many lives as possible. The funds entrusted to ALIMA allow us to:
Treat more patients and save even more lives by providing high-quality medical care that is adapted to each humanitarian crisis;
Offer improved treatments in ongoing medical crises such as malaria, acute malnutrition and associated illnesses. We also deliver comprehensive and systematic paediatric treatment programmes to reduce infant and child mortality;
Invest in medical innovation by using research to improve what we do in humanitarian crises, we seek to deliver sustainable medical solutions to people who wouldn’t otherwise have access to treatment.
“In Niger, ALIMA and BEFEN have developed strategies that get mums to participate in screening their children for malnutrition. This strategy has identified sick children at an earlier stage and significantly reduced the numbers who are hospitalized. In 2015, they treated nearly 50,000 severely malnourished children”.
