Located in the centre of the capital is SAF, an organisation set up as a Church of Jesus Christ in Madagascar (FJKM)’s development programme, which runs a medical clinic and main pharmacy to tackle deficiencies in healthcare. This project funded by the Union of Welsh Independents (UWI) since 2018/2019 has borne fruit in Madagasar, where medical care is also too expensive for the average person and the population to doctor ratio is high.
Housed as part of the FJKM offices, SAF has acquired ultrasound equipment and built waiting and examination rooms, where they treat adult and child-related diseases and administer vaccinations at affordable fees. SAF also runs a maternity and contraception clinic, which serves 200 women and 80 pregnant women every month.
To deal with malnutrition issues in the population, SAF also runs a National Nutrition Programme in rural villages where they have pharmacies.
