  • ACTION HOPE MALAWI

  • SRHR ACCOUNTABILITY

    Sexual Reproductive Health rights are fundamental principles of human rights. The legal and policy environment in Malawi hinders access to SRH services by Women and young people. Action Hope Malawi is working tirelessly to lobby Malawi Government and other stakeholders to review some of the policies and guidelines to give chances to Women and young people to access services without any problems.

     

    Many women and girls in Malawi want/need to prevent unplanned pregnancies and access safe abortion services and post-abortion care, but currently, the resources, policies, and enabling environment do not allow them to access these services. Women/Girls' lives MATTER!

     

  • Nutritional Education For People with HIV

    Good nutritional status is very important from the time a person is infected with HIV. Nutrition education at this early stage gives the person a chance to build up healthy eating habits and to take action to improve food security in the home, particularly as regards the cultivation, storage, and cooking of food.

     

    With funding from Egmont Trust, UK, Action Hope Malawi is implementing a one-year project aimed at reversing malnutrition among children and at the same time improving ART adherence among young people.
