Policy

Malawi has made remarkable progress in improving the socioeconomic well-being of its people in recent years. However, the country continues to face challenges posed by population dynamics such as high fertility and mortality rates, a high child-dependency burden, unemployment, and environmental degradation.

The National Population Policy (2013) is aimed at improving the standard of living and the quality of life of the people of Malawi. This policy is positioned from a development perspective. The first National Population Policy was developed in 1994 following the International Conference on Population and Development with emphasis on access to Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights.

The 1994 Policy focused on reducing the growth rate of the population, while the current one (2013) is aimed at supporting the achievement of sustainable socioeconomic development as envisaged in the national development agenda and international development framework.
