Abwenzi Pa Za Umoyo, PIH’s local Malawi team, collaborates with Malawi’s Ministry of Health to provide comprehensive care for about 160,000 people in Neno

That care starts with a community-based screening program. Just as clinics integrate treatment. the screening program enables people to be tested for numerous conditions at single outreach events We also visit people in their homes, where village health workers check on the needs of entire households and families who often are health workers friends and neighbors.

And when people need to visit a health center, they now have far better options than they did just a decade ago.

When PIH began working in Neno, there was no district hospital and its 10 health centers had fallen into disrepair.
