  • Strengthening Malawi's Health System with PALM+

    One of the major challenges in providing quality care for patients in low-resource settings like sub-Saharan Africa is the severe shortage of health workers. This situation is further compounded in rural areas, where health workers find themselves overwhelmed with long patient queues, inadequate training and no support. To help address this issue, Dignitas International, along with our partners in Malawi and at the University of Cape Town Lung Institute's Knowledge Translation Unit, worked to develop a toolkit and training model known as PALM+ (Practical Approach to Lung Health + HIV/AIDS in Malawi).

The country started testing the use of the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) to try and cut down on the time it takes to test for HIV in infants living in rural areas.

  • A recipe for strengthening health systems | Dr. Perry Jansen | TEDxLilongwe

    The ingredients for a stronger health system are there. But how do we cook them? Dr. Jansen is an American family physician who moved his family to Malawi in 2000. Moved by the enormity of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, he and a group of Malawians founded the Malawian non-profit Partners in Hope. Their medical centre cares for over 7,000 HIV patients and leads a major PEPFAR-funded HIV/training program in over 90 facilities in six districts. PIH is committed to expanding to become a full service, non-profit teaching and research hospital. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

  • Improving health in Malawi: MaiMwana Project (UCL)

    UCL is hosting an exhibition of photographs chronicling the university's involvement in a project to improve mother and and child health in rural Africa. The UCL Centre for International Health and Development established the MaiMwana Project in Malawi in 2002. Maternal mortality in the country is among the highest in the world and neonatal mortality is also high and accounts for almost half of all infant deaths. High mortality rates are partly a result of poor health care for mothers and their children thanks to a lack of drugs and supplies, high turnover of health service providers, variable service quality and lack of ownership by local communities. The MaiMwana Project aims to reduce mother and child mortality and morbidity by mobilising women's groups in local communities...

    Health Poverty has a huge impact on the health of the population in Malawi. Poverty results in high levels of malnutrition, a lack of clean water, poor sanitation and a severe shortage or even absence of the most basic health care.

In addition killer diseases such as malaria and tuberculosis and the HIV/AIDS pandemic also take an enormous toll on the lives and quality of life of families and communities across the country. MACS supports health care through: •Supporting 3 Anglican mission hospitals: St Anne's in Nkhotakota, St Luke's in Chilema and St Martin's at Malindi. •Each hospital is responsible for running rural health centres.

http://www.pacificprime.com/countries/malawi/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cj7hzhK_wJ8 We are one of the world's leading brokers advising on worldwide medical insurance policy. We work with all the main worldwide health insurance policies firms and have workplaces in Asia and Europe. Around the world we have over +120,000 clients, the greater part of our consumers are family members but we also operate with several of the world's foremost companies like l' oreal and unilever. Our experience is in providing guidance and service to people looking for extensive global medical insurance, specifically those residing in developing countries or abroad from their home country. We won't trade, loan, or otherwise share your details with any person or any other firm. As a matter of fact, if you want to remain totally nameless it's possible. Family health coverage policies are a really popular choice in Malawi indeed. They offer the insured the option to insure their entire family by buying a common policy. We are an informative site. The first thing to think about. Before starting to choose a policy, it is very important to take an honest analysis of your specific situation and requirements. If you are an expatriate right in Malawi or you are planning to relocate to the region in future, you may be contemplating buying medical insurance for yourself and your family, in particular if you have children. Are you tired of being given recommendations on plans that look like advantage the needs of the insurance company rather than you as the policy owner? We are an autonomous insurance adviser who will always put the interests of our clients before the partners. this means that you are provided with fair advice about various health insurance policies in Malawi that best fit you. In the last decade, we have continuously maintained our leadership in the Malawi insurance market. We do this by frequently judging not only the quality of service of our own firm, but also that of the insurance firms that we select to partner with. The greatest coverage providers are selected by us, based on their service quality and portfolio offerings. This assures that the highest level of coverage protection is provided to our clients. We work with over 60 insurance companies that provide a large variety of expat health coverage policies in the region. We are also able to provide recommendations regarding which facilities in Malawi are the most appropriate for the medical care of certain medical issues. What is maternity coverage ? The costs involved in having a baby abroad can be an huge financial load if insurance policy has not been taken out. Medical center fees all together with pre-natal, post-natal, labour and delivery fees and unforeseen difficulties can usually exceed usd 15,000. In the regrettable event of a child getting born with congenital problems the costs can much exceed this. Many expatriates are ignorant that having kids overseas can involve astronomical costs and planning in advance is very essential if devastating economic implications are to be averted. Chronic condition insurance in Malawi : Chronic condition are typically outlined as healthcare issues which you do not recover from but only manage and keep, for instance diabetes and bronchial asthma. Currently about fifty percent of the international healthcare insurance policies in the market offer coverage for chronic conditions. It is important to realize that the on-going treatment and administration of chronic conditions in Malawi can be really expensive as this kind of plans supplying this protection are generally far more pricey.
