Lilongwe District (Central Region)
The Central Region Child Health Program is currently implementing two projects within Lilongwe district: in the catchment area of Katchale Health Centre and in the catchment area of Maluwa Health Centre. Both are rural, government-run Health Centres in Lilongwe district. Both facilities manage village clinics which provide services to remote communities.
We chose these areas because they have:
- Significant needs, particularly for child health.
- High population density, allowing us to reach a large number of people with fewer resources.
- Very few other NGOs running programs, and no other NGOs running child health programs.
- A stable government and security situation, allowing for the implementation of a long term program.
A house-by-house census was used to measure the population of the catchment area in March 2014.
|Children under 5 years||3,328|
A house-by-house census was used to measure the population of the catchment area in May 2015.
|Children under 5 years||2,432|
