Full Document (pdf 439.7 kb)
In 2008, Malawi's Ministry of Health approved community-based distribution of injectable contraceptives by Health Surveillance Assistants. Strong family planning champions and evidence-based advocacy, combined with demand in communities, were among the factors that contributed to this policy change. Various USAID-funded projects have supported the development of operational guidelines and an initial pilot test in 8 districts. The policy change and pilot test help set the stage for the potential nationwide scale-up of community-based distribution.
