Rapid diagnostic tests help more people get malaria treatment quickly, says the World Health Organization.
About 64 percent of suspected malaria cases globally received a rapid diagnostic test in 2012, compared with just 44 percent in 2010. World Vision supplies these rapid test kits to clinics and village health workers who then use a drop of blood to diagnose a patient in 15 minutes. Thousands more tests are needed to cover hard-to-reach communities.
Pray that millions who need diagnosis and treatment for malaria may have their needs met and lives saved.
“Lord, we see so much progress, yet so much need. Empower companies and aid groups to deliver supplies where needed most.”
