The Situation

Everyone has the right to access healthcare. Yet to many people in Malawi, this right is denied. Healthcare facilities do not exist where they are most needed. Only 46% of Malawians live within reach of a health facility. This is especially true in rural and remote areas where the distance to travel to a facility, or the cost to do so, is too great.

Malawi has one of the highest maternal mortality rates in the world with infant mortality rates estimated at 84 in 1000 births. The high mortality of under five-year-olds is mostly caused by malaria, diarrhea, and pneumonia.

 

Wandikweza exists to provide healthcare closer to the people. We work to remove barriers to healthcare for ultra-poor Malawians in remote areas. We do this through Community Health Workers, mobile clinics, Nurses on Bikes, and our dedicated Health Centre.

We believe everyone in Malawi should have access to high-quality health care when they need it.
