Photo of the week, April 18th

Recycling is a mentality that is beginning to catch on in Ghana.  Here we see a large collection of plastic packagings for recycling, at a site in rural Ghana.  Sadly many of the items waiting for recycling tend to blow around into the surrounding countryside.  After a rain, the plastic adds to the malaria risk by acting as a temporary hatching ground for the mosquito. Recycling is excellent, and needs to be carried out with good understanding of the management and effects (good and not so good) of the activity.  Photo Courtesy of Medicine on the Move.
