We Boost Health. We Build Hope: Together Let’s End This Public Health Crisis.
MSG has waged a war on the spread of preventable and treatable diseases over ten years ago, and we continue to fight battles every day. Why? Because we believe that the right to clean water and good health is a prerequisite for all other human rights. In just five years, we have already:
Reached more than 350,000 people with in person health education, including millions more with our social media radio programming.
Continue to give vital health education everyday through our many programs. In 2021 we reached over 1,900 through our Disease Prevention Centers, 7,500 participants through our Outreach programming at markets, restaurants and businesses, and reached over 2,000 clients through our health hotline.
Witnessed 85 percent of our WASH education participants commit to changing their water, sanitation and hygiene behaviors at home.
Reached over 3000 female and male students through our health clubs and provided menstrual education and sanitary pads to stay in school. These girls and boys, in turn, were inspired to lead change in their schools and communities by invite their female guardians to communal meals to educate them.
In 2021 alone handed out over 20,000 health education leaflets that teach about disease transmission and how to create behavioral barriers and prevent disease in their family’s daily life.
Contributed to preventing a new cholera outbreak in the Rora Distrcit after partnering with the government in 2015 and 2016 to stop the spread of highly infectious cholera epidemics.
MSG measured our impact through our Annual Health Screening Program from 2015-2020.
Since MSG started operations, we have conducted over five years of health screenings and have found a consistent pattern: People who have been exposed to MSG’s WASH education healthier than those who have not received such education, and when MSG is running programs in a community, overall public health improves. It was MSG’s honor to be at the center of this huge public health service that could not have been possible with out the collaboration of the Rorya District Medical Officer and the leadership of the Shirati KMT Hospital.
