Phalombe District (Southern Region)
The Southern Region Child Health Program is currently implemented in the following areas within Phalombe district:
- in the catchment area of Nambazo Health Centre, where community activities were implemented from August 2015 to July 2019, and where health system support activities only are now conducted
- in the catchment area of Kalinde Health Centre, where community activities were implemented from August 2019 to December 2019, and where health system support activities only are now conducted
- in the catchment area of Nazombe Health Centre, where the program started in October 2019
- in the catchment area of Waruma Health Post and Nambiti Health Post, where the program started in January 2020
Both are rural, government-run Health Facilities in Phalombe district. Both facilities manage village clinics which provide services to remote communities.
We chose this area because it has:
- 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.
All data provided is obtained through house-by-house census conducted by the Inter Aide team.
