Where we work

East Africa

The key challenges in this region include: shortfalls in drugs, diagnostics and therapeutic food at treatment centres, poor infrastucture and service access by groups at high risk of VL, inadequate VL mapping and surveillance and knowledge gaps relating to transmission. Some regions also face significant security challenges due to conflict.

South Asia

KalaCORE's strategic focus in the South Asia region is to support these countries in keeping VL transmission levels low so that the VL elimination target as a public health problem be achieved and all progress is maintained.
