Photo of the Day: Mozambique Health Center Welcomes Patients with Signs of Hope

By Tiffany Myers | February 10, 2014

 

This January, Peace Corps volunteers, community members, and health workers in Mozambique painted messages of health and hope on the entrance walls of the Health Center of Guijá. The gateway to the health center now displays murals about HIV prevention and treatment, hygiene and sanitation, and malaria prevention.

Local artists designed the three panels, incorporating ideas from health center staff. Two panels include phrases in the local dialect that translate to “Our health is in our hands,” and “Prevention begins with our hygiene.”


The mural was organized by a local Peace Corps volunteer, Elisabetta Colabianchi, and funded through the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF).
