CHAI’s health financing program is working in 13 countries to support Ministries of Health to substantially and sustainably improve access to essential health services for their populations. Health financing is often insufficient and overly reliant on donors and individuals paying out of pocket at facilities. The goal of the CHAI Sustainable Health Financing program in Malawi is to support the government to progressively move towards universal health coverage through sustainably bringing more resources into the health sector and to ensure they are distributed and utilized equitably, efficiently and effectively for the delivery of high-quality health services.
The CHAI Malawi Sustainable Health Financing team works closely with the Ministry of Health (MOH) and District Health Management Teams (DHMTs) to provide technical assistance, develop analytical tools, and strengthen capacity to manage resources in Malawi’s health sector.
