How do you say............ ?

Submitted by Michaela Sholes

As MoM works towards ensuring that all our materials are appropriate for community understanding and context, we rely on those who know Ghanaians best....Ghanaians themselves! During part of our class session today, the AvTech girls went through our most recent information sheet regarding Malaria and provided valuable insights to wording and perspectives. Although it might sound easy to do, it can be rather tricky to find simpler terms than "parasites" and "immune system" and even "unconscious"...especially when one attempts to find the local word for such things, much less the English word! Good work today, girls!
