I am passionate about

Actions

I have contributed to reduction of maternal and neonatal mortality in Chitipa district. To begin with, i served as a safe motherhood coordinator for the district for six years. In this period, i was able to advocate for resources for construction of a Neonatal unit, which reduced neonatal mortality rates by half within a year. I also instituted an advocacy strategy in Chitipa community to deal away with child, early and forced marriages in the district. I worked with local leaders and other stakeholders in the district, and eventually reduced the rates of early marriages.
