Filling the gaps

14.3

people in Malawi lack basic access to care for preventable illness. We’ve been working to fill the gaps and strengthen the health system for 20 years. We do this in partnership with local communities, health officials and our implementing and development partners.

We provide community-based health services and education to under-served populations in rural communities
