Pacific Prime is the world largest distributor of international private medical insurance to individual, families and SMEs. In fact in 2013 we were rewarded at the top global distributor's award for IHI Denmark and Bupa International. But we don't just work with these two insurers. We work with all international private medical insurers, and in fact for most of them, we are the world largest distributor, or perhaps top 1-2-3. So what does this mean ?

    Senegal has introduced a new group of community health workers, called DSDOMs or home-based care providers. These volunteer community health workers are providing life-saving malaria treatment to those without access to a health facility. Armed with a tool box including rapid diagnostic tests, to detect malaria with the prick of a finger, and medicines, to treat those who test positive, community health workers can provide fast and free care to their sick neighbors without ever having to leave their village. To date, the program has expanded from 20 villages to 1000 villages and, where the program is active, villages have seen a decrease in malaria deaths to near zero. Successful programs like this one are living proof that we're winning fight against malaria.

Dental optical, wellbeing, maternity perhaps if you are looking to start a family. Evacuation and repatriation, then if you are living or working in Senegal, it is pretty obvious that taking that module of evacuation and repatriation is gone to be critical, because of the event of a serious illness, then it is most likely you are gone to want to be evacuated to perhaps south Africa, or Dubai or perhaps even back to Europe, so beyond those modules, there is also thing around chronic conditions, preexisting conditions, chronic medical conditions, guarantee renewability.

Ms. Sabaly credits a community health centre for her children's survival, as well as a community nutrition programme that identifies local food resources such as squash, eggs and milk. Before this programme, feeding children these products was considered taboo. "At first, Abdoulaye was suffering from malnutrition," she says.
