  • 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.

  • Invisible Lives: Newborn Health in Nepal and Malawi

    Globally nearly four million newborns die each year, making up more than 40% of under-five child deaths. More newborn lives must be saved in order to meet Millennium Development Goal (MDG) 4 for child survival, a 2/3 reduction in under-five child deaths by 2015. How can these numbers be reduced? We go to Malawi and Nepal, countries that are both on track for MDG 4 and have similar statistics on newborn survival, to find out what is being done.

The MaiMwana Project aims to reduce mother and child mortality and morbidity by mobilising women's groups in local communities to take control of their own health issues. See the UCL video 'Umodzi' for more information and a subtitled video. Thanks to the award of a Beacon Bursary from UCL, these groups have used disposable cameras to document the impact the project is having on their lives. UCL is consistently ranked as one of the world's very best universities. As a multi-faculty, research-intensive university in central London, our research helps tackle global challenges and feeds directly into outstanding degree programmes. Visit us at www.ucl.ac.uk
