Malawians face a crushing HIV/AIDS epidemic and high rates of infant and maternal mortality. These and other health problems are difficult to overcome; quality care is scarcely available or unaffordable for most people. Those that can pay for treatment are often unable to reach clinics, especially over the mountainous terrain and barely passable roads of rural areas.
Since 2007, Partners In Health in Malawi, known locally as Abwenzi Pa Za Umoyo, has worked in partnership with the Ministry of Health in the rural district of Neno to provide comprehensive care for about 150,000 people.
This year, PIH Engage is working to raise funds for the APZU Outpatient Department expansion in Neno, Malawi. Come join us for our event as we raise funds to build this new center of care.
