In Malawi we are working with our partner Action Meningitis to triage children when they reach the hospital. Previously clients were seen on a first come first serve basis, but now with this tool, clients are being screened and organized into high, medium and low priority queues reducing waiting time for sick children to be seen. Over 100,000 children have been screened under this program in 7 clinics.
