Malawi’s Action Plan Aims To Accelerate Progress Toward Ending Preventable Maternal, Newborn, Child Deaths

Devex: Every Newborn Action Plan: Malawi’s road map for change
Jean Kalilani, Malawi’s minister of health

“…This week I will help officially launch Malawi’s Every Newborn Action Plan. … My aim is that this newborn action plan will guide the efforts of the Ministry of Health, our district officers, and all stakeholders to design specific plans for accelerating progress toward ending preventable deaths among mothers and newborns and avoidable stillbirths. I am confident that the plan sharpens the focus on implementation of existing and new initiatives, and that is why we are recommending it to all stakeholders. It is vital that Malawi make use of every means and innovation possible to maximize use of health services and to avert preventable maternal, newborn, and child deaths” (7/27).
