CONTEXT

Inter Aide launched its first community programs in Malawi in 1992 and is now working in the following fields:

  • Sanitation, access to drinking water and hygiene promotion
  • Water supply system maintenance
  • Infant and child health
  • Agriculture and support for family farming

The child health program has been running since 1997 and today Inter Aide is active in Lilongwe district (one health centre catchment area) and Phalombe district (two health centre catchment areas).

The Child Health Programs in both districts are joint programs between Inter Aide and the Ministry of Health. Our goal is to reduce the number of children under five years old, including neonates, who get sick or die from preventable diseases. This is achieved by:

  1. Increasing the number of children receiving early diagnosis and treatment for malaria, diarrhea, and pneumonia.
  2. Increasing the number of parents implementing prevention behaviours, including using latrines, washing hands and having their child sleep under a bed net.
  3. Reducing the number of complications during pregnancy and birth through increasing the use of safe delivery services and family planning.
