Amref Health Africa in Malawi was established in 2012 in response to calls from the Ministry of Health to support its efforts in strengthening primary healthcare in Malawian communities.
What do we do?
Our work in Malawi began in 2013 with a project designed to help women who had developed obstetric fistula during childbirth: a relatively common condition that can cause pain and emotional distress, but that is easily treatable with the correct support. Since then, Amref Health Africa has worked with communities and partners to implement projects across the full breadth of our technical portfolio, including health worker training; maternal and new-born health; sexual and reproductive health and rights; and water, sanitation and hygiene. In 2020, we implemented a total of 12 projects throughout the country, and Malawi remains one of Amref's priority countries in our COVID-19 Emergency Response and Recovery Plan.
