UJ-BCURE workshop with Local Government in Malawi
During a recent visit to Malawi, members of the UJ-BCURE team took part in a workshop held in Mponela with representatives from the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development (MLGRD). The workshop was organised by the Parent and Child Health Initiative (PACHI), UJ-BCURE’s implementing partner in Malawi. Key government officials such as the Director of Planning in the MLGRD, Mr Zwuwawo; the Head of the Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation Directorate, Mr Kayira; and representatives from Mchinji, Ntchisi, Phalombe and Mangochi districts attended. The workshop was part of UJ-BCURE’s needs assessment process, following a landscape review. The aim of the workshop was to develop a programme of work that will focus on strengthening evidence-informed decision-making in four districts in Malawi in 2015 and 2016. Representatives from the districts responded to a proposed work plan developed by PACHI in collaboration with the MLGRD, with input from UJ-BCURE.
