We Believe

A person's health shouldn't be limited by where they live



of public nursing positions in Malawi are vacant, leaving the health infrastructure unable to support those in need



people live in rural areas beyond a walkable distance to a fixed health facility



of deaths In Malawi are due to preventable illness that better access to healthcare would address

We are filling the gaps in the healthcare grid

“I am proud of this [fellowship] experience because I helped save the life of a mother and I am looking forward to saving more lives. The fellowship has helped to boost my confidence, I have been able to learn from colleagues in times when I am in doubt, I have learned about teamwork, and I have been able to financially support my children and family.” - Thokozire Shaba

Thokozire, a nurse/midwife in GAIA’s nursing fellowship program, was a mother of three when her father encouraged her to pursue her nursing dreams. Thokozire is one of 196 nursing fellows GAIA has supported to date.
