Advocacy & Communications

Communication and advocacy are a vital part of the national effort to manage population. The Government of Malawi is committed to ensuring that individuals and couples have the information and education they need to make informed choices, and have means to act on their decisions, as underscored in National and International guiding frameworks (i.e. National Population Policy for Malawi and the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) Programme of Action.

However, despite various initiatives and programmes in population communication and advocacy in Malawi, public awareness of the linkages between family planning, population growth, and development still remains low. Malawi’s fertility remains high at 5.7 children per woman and only one in every four women is able to access methods of family planning.

Here are some communication resources.
