For decades, Pact has been internationally regarded for its innovative capacity development approaches that help transform promising local nonprofits into powerhouses in health services, advocacy and other pursuits to improve their communities.
Pact’s work in Malawi is based on that tradition.
Our Fisheries Integration of Society and Habitats, or FISH, project is increasing social, ecological, and economic resilience to climate change and improving biodiversity conservation through sustainable fisheries co-management. The project's Pact-led consortium is enabling communities and local government to protect four of Malawi’s main lakes, which contribute significantly to the health of the country and its people. By building local capacity, FISH is creating lasting change in the management of Malawi’s fisheries.
Pact is also making a significant difference in people’s health in Malawi, specifically for orphans and vulnerable children and those affected by HIV and AIDS. Our DREAMS project is working specifically to reduce HIV in fishing communities, and through LINKAGES, we’re working with key populations affected by the disease, including sex workers, men who have sex with men, people who inject drugs and transgender people.
Our efforts in Malawi are also strengthening health systems and local health organizations, and supporting Malawi's Ministry of Health and private service providers to improve modern family planning and reproductive health and rights services.
