Home / About Us / Areas We Work / Madagascar

Madagascar, officially the Republic of Madagascar, and previously known as the Malagasy Republic, is an island country in the Indian Ocean, off the coast of East Africa. Madagascar is a biodiversity hotspot; over 90% of its wildlife is found nowhere else on Earth. The island's diverse ecosystems and unique wildlife are threatened by the encroachment of the rapidly growing human population and other environmental threats. Madagascar belongs to the group of least developed countries, according to the United Nations. Malagasy and French are both official languages of the state. The majority of the population adheres to traditional beliefs, Christianity, or an amalgamation of both. Ecotourism and agriculture, paired with greater investments in education, health, and private enterprise, are key elements of Madagascar's development strategy.

The educational system in Madagascar is in need of improvement. Primary education is ranked 119th in the world, with secondary education ranked 125th with only a 38& enrollment rate. The quality of secondary education system is ranked 110th overall.

Although medical centers, are found throughout the island of Madagascar, access to medical care remains beyond the reach of many Malagasy. Child immunizations against such diseases as hepatitis B, diphtheria and measles increased an average of 60% in the last 20 years.

 

The technology and internet access needs vast development in Madagascar. It ranks last in both internet users and ICT use, with only 4% of the population recorded as internet users. Only 10% of the population has Mobile-Broadband subscriptions. Madagascar is ranked 115th for the availability of latest technologies.
