I am passionate about
ActionsI 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.
