USAID/Medium: One Community, One Voice
Anna Lisi, managing editor at Palladium working on the USAID- and PEPFAR-funded Health Policy Plus project, discusses the efforts of a community in Malawi to improve midwifery and maternity care, writing, “Through [the Health Policy Plus project (HP+) and White Ribbon Alliance for Safe Motherhood-Malawi (WRA)] support, health workers were held accountable for providing quality and respectful care, citizens were given the opportunity to speak up and take action, and community trust was strengthened for better health outcomes for mothers and babies” (5/5).
