In Tanzania in 2000, Margareth Roman, a nine-year-old girl who is sick with malaria, sits up in her hospital bed, assisted by a woman nurse at a health centre in the village of Kibaha, 70km west of Dar-es-Salaam, the capital. UNICEF assists the centre with essential drugs, vaccines and medical equipment.
