Prioritization of Family Planning Interventions at National and District Levels for 2018–2020: Addendum to the 2015 Malawi CIP

Malawi’s 2015 Costed Implementation Plan (CIP) for Family Planning, 2016–2020, is a comprehensive roadmap to help achieve the country’s vision and goals to improve the health and well-being of the country’s population. This addendum to the CIP defines priority interventions and key districts to maximize gains to reach family planning goals, based on the application of the FP Goals model. HP+ and Track20 applied the model in 2018 with the Ministry of Health and Population, Reproductive Health Directorate and other stakeholders to prioritize strategies from the CIP that may have the greatest impact on increasing demand for and use of high-quality family planning services across districts.

The addendum to the 2015 Malawi costed implementation plan for family planning, 2016–2020, defines the priority interventions and key acceleration districts—Blantyre, Likoma, Lilongwe, Machinga, Mangochi, Mzimba, Nkhatabay, Nkhotakota, Nsanje, Salima, and Zomba—for maximized gains.

Malawi National Population Policy (2013) under  review

The National Population Policy (2013) was 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 National Population Policy was planned to be implemented for 5 years. In 2018, the Government with support from  development partners embarked on the process of reviewing the 2013 population policy. The NPP is being reviewed to guide programme responses to minimize the negative effects of population dynamics and optimize the role of population as a key development resource for the country. Achieving these objectives will help achieve sustainable economic growth, as envisaged in the Malawi Growth and Development Strategy III; International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) Programme of Action; Agenda 2063; and Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs) frameworks.
