ICDP Malawi update

ICDP in Malawi is progressing very well...

“ICDP in Malawi is progressing very well despite some financial constraints – last year we received the last contribution from Norway, but we are now trying to mobilize new resources.

Over the last three months we have finalized the training of a group of 32 new ICDP Facilitators. These facilitators are linked to our partner organizations, the Chikwawa Health Commission and the Evangelical Association of Malawi. It has been a long journey but we are finally there. It is very encouraging for us that ICDP has been included in the new strategic plan for the period 2016-2020.

Another significant development is that we have integrated ICDP in the disaster response for the Lower shire – this is the area where there was an enormous flooding and a lot of lives were lost. The effects of the displacement were massive. In this context we have trained several facilities so to enable them to go on training groups of caregivers and thus to scale up ICDP in this part of the country.

We would appreciate linking up with other potential partners that might be interested to scale up ICDP in Malawi.” – Paul Mmanjamwada, ICDP Malawi country representative.
