Aiming Higher in Malawi
Award Period: 2014 to 2016
This project will implement a holistic, integrated health care improvement intervention for 400 disabled children from rural villages in Mulanje South West and Thyolo East, Malawi. Existing ‘Girls Go For Health’ supervisors will be trained to assess the health needs of disabled children in their homes and parents will be encouraged to seek assistance. Services at the newly constructed Disabled Children’s Assessment Centre will be developed. Transport to healthcare services will be provided, and a number of health camps delivered.
