We Believe

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



62% of nursing positions in Malawi are vacant, leaving the health infrastructure unable to support those in need



14.3m people live in rural areas beyond a walkable distance to a fixed health facility



58% 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

Funny, a widowed mother of six, volunteers at the Chikonde stop of the Mkanda Mobile Health Clinics as a way to give back to her community and to thank GAIA for the impact they have had on her life. After becoming sick and testing positive for HIV, GAIA linked her to lifesaving treatment and her health has been restored. She has been volunteering with GAIA for over eight years.
