(BPT) - Africa faces immense challenges when it comes to providing adequate health care to its people. Non-communicable disease rates are alarmingly high, and many others suffer from preventable and treatable diseases, such as malaria, tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS. In addition, low levels of awareness, declining infrastructure and poor distribution channels provide large scale barriers.
