The burden of malaria has dropped significantly in the last 10 ten years. It is unfortunate that this completely preventable disease continues to exist at all, particularly among pregnant women, where malaria can have extreme consequences on both maternal and fetal outcomes.
This report presents four indicators related to use of insecticide treated nets (ITNs); individual access to ITN within the household, individual use of ITN the previous night, household ownership of at least one ITN, and the use:access ratio.
This is the endline report of the Moyo ndi Mpamba project in Malawi.
Moyo ndi Mpamba, Usamalireni! (“Life is precious, take care of it!”) was an aspirational campaign that connected the idea of wellness to prosperity, and encouraged Malawians to take steps to improve their own health and that of their families.
As part of the research for the Moyo ndi Mpamba campaign in Malawi, in March 2013, SSDI-Communication conducted research to find out the preferences of several of its platform campaigns by selected communities in the 3 regions of the country on the essential health package.
In Malawi, the Moyo ndi Mpamba project implemented a Music4Life initiative, through which musical artists were engaged to produce and perform songs that incorporated health messages.
This document presents a unified strategy for communicating about six major health priority areas: malaria; maternal, neonatal and child health (MNCH); water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH); family planning (FP); HIV and AIDS; and nutrition.
SSDI-Communication engaged with Malawian music stars to produce this album of 15 songs that integrate messages about health, wellness, and the importance of taking care of oneslef and one's family.
This toolkit includes information, tools, materials, and reports from the Support for Service Delivery Integration (SSDI)-Communication project, implemented by the Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs (CCP) and partners in Malawi from 2011-2016.
