Malawi's health indicators are among the worst in the world, with the Malawian healthcare system ranking 185th out of 190 countries according to the WHO.

To ensure a sustainable, comprehensive, and equitable healthcare system in Malawi, urgent measures such as expanding education and improving diagnostic capacities are needed. It is crucial that high-quality medical care is made accessible to all individuals, particularly the most disadvantaged populations.

How?

      We are actively involved in establishing a national medical care network, which includes:

5 hospitals

34 medical clinics

     We implement training programs in surgery and laboratory medicine to catalyze the development of the centrally located Nkhoma Hospital into a teaching hospital.

Why?

Critical value added by a medical network and a teaching hospital:

Implementation of quality standards Economy of scale (Improved resource utilization = lower cost)

Equity – means of access to quality medical care for even the poorest

Building local capacities: Graduates of the training programs become multipliers in the hospitals of the  network and thus address the enormous shortage of experts and medical care - independent of western help.
