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.
In Malawi, Pact’s capacity development work maps, coordinates and better equips on-the-ground organizations combatting the spread of HIV. Local partners learn not only from Pact, but also from each other and other knowledgeable health partners about how to effectively fight the deadly virus. Hundreds of Malawian organizations are now networking and uniting, sharing their strengths and helping each other overcome their weaknesses.
As they improve, so do the communities they serve.
Pact also helps local organizations to ensure those most at risk of contracting HIV can access the services they need. In partnership with Population Services International, Pact offers small grants to Malawian organizations leading behavior-change communications programs that drive high-risk individuals to the right health providers and services. In 2012 alone, 117,345 high-risk individuals participated in our grantees’ interventions.
