Partners In Health Celebrates 10 Years In Malawi
Partners In Health is celebrating 10 years in Malawi. In a rural area where almost no one had HIV medication, we got 8,000 people onto treatment and restored a dozen clinics for the region’s 150,000 residents. We’re called Abwenzi Pa Za Umoyo in local Chichewa and are known for developing health programs that work for people—from checking up on pregnant women in their homes to holding community gatherings to test people for diabetes. Malawi’s ministry of health collaborates closely with us to replicate our work in other places.
In the words of clinician Grant Gonani, “People are flocking to get services here because we are giving quality services. And the services are accessible to the people. So this is awesome. I’m the witness of that. I have seen that happening.”
