Fleischer Proaño, Laura and Stack, Kathleen. (October 2010) Saving for Change: Savings Groups as Platforms for Malaria Education in Mali. Aga Khan Foundation Savings Group Learning Initiative. Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN).
Abstract

Given the high incidence of malaria, the cost of treatment and lost time at work, as well as limited knowledge about malaria prevention and treatment, Saving for Change uses SGs to deliver malaria education to members to enhance the impact of the programme. The Mali experience illustrates that SGs provide a powerful platform for delivering education.
