Maternal and Child Health Research
Azafady explored the factors that affect women and children's access to health services in
Fort Dauphin in order to develop a comprehensive long-term coordinated intervention to reduce maternal
and child mortality.
Rural Water & Sanitation
Azafady responded to overwhelming demand from more than 20 rural communities for access to clean drinking water
and sanitation facilities by constructing wells and latrines as well as providing participatory education sessions
about the causes of ill health.
Supporting Women's Associations to Improve Maternal Health
Azafady built the capacity of 6 women's associations in the urban commune of Fort Dauphin through a peer
educator training programme focused on maternal health and HIV. This project also involved setting up the first
ever antenatal group in Fort Dauphin.
Azafady worked with 42 isolated rural communities to build their capacity to combat malnutrition,
specifically targeting pregnant women and children under 5 years old.
Urban Sanitation in Fort Dauphin
Azafady worked to improve public health and promote economic development through tourism in the
urban commune of Fort Dauphin, with the provision of communal latrines near popular beaches.
HIV Awareness & Sexual Behaviour Change
Azafady worked with young people aged 13–24 across the urban commune of Fort Dauphin to encourage the adoption
of safer sexual practices and reduce the transmission of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections.
