In 2011, the co-founders of One Sun Health met on the Organization for Tropical Studies’ Global Health Issues study abroad program in South Africa. During this program, they conducted community based participatory health research on various issues that plague rural South Africa, including malaria. Their experience and interactions with communities in the region of HaMakuya, Limpopo Province sparked a passion to return the area to work with the local stakeholders to develop a sustainable solution to a lack of malaria education. It is with these experiences that we continue to drive the growth of One Sun Health’s programs.
ENETI, a social enterprise initiative, led training and provided equipment & technical assistance for 2 rural sewing co-operatives to make and sell mosquito nets for their community and tourist markets.
