OUR PROGRAMS

We are serving the local community by providing essential health services to all members of the community - babies, children, youth,parents, and the elderly.

Maternity Ward

In response to Malawi's alarming maternal and infant mortality rates, the maternity ward provides a safe and clean environment for mothers to give birth, reducing birth risks. The facility also carries out preventative action by providing antenatal services that greatly decrease the risk of HIV/AIDS transmission from mother to child during birth.

Each month we provide counseling and medicine to an average of 60 pregnant women, and an average of 12 babies are born in our clinic each week.

THE MATERNITY WARD PROGRAM INCLUDES:

Antiretroviral therapy.

Trained healthcare workers and well-equipped maternity ward to ensure safe deliveries.

Screening pregnant mothers and providing nevirapine pre-delivery to mother and post-delivery to infant to prevent transmission of HIV/AIDS.

Liaising with Traditional Birth Attendants to expand coverage of the population.

PRIMARY HEALTH

Due to the prevalence of malnutrition and the high contraction rates of infections and diseases such as malaria, cholera, and TB in the area, we provide primary health care treatments. The clinic also offers an ambulance service to transport seriously ill Lifeline patients to the nearest hospital.

Every day we see an average of 200 patients.

The curative services our outpatient
department provides are:

Protein Energy Malnutrition ~ Malaria & Tuberculosis
Tropical Skin Disease ~ Cholera & GI Disease
Acute Respiratory Infection ~ Burns & Trauma
Epilepsy ~ Pneumonia & Bronchitis

HIV/AIDS

As there are many Malawians living with HIV/AIDS, we provide counseling and testing services to help individuals become aware and learn about their health. We also supply life-giving antiretroviral therapy to patients on a weekly basis, as well as group counseling sessions helping them face the reality of living with the disease in the community. This process acts to empower, prolong lives, and reduce the number of orphans as parents are able to continue to take care of their families.

We are working to mitigate the spread of HIV/AIDS by testing 230 people every month and encouraging safe lifestyles.

WE PROVIDE:

Community Health Education

Disease prevention is a vital factor in diminishing the widespread health concerns Malawians face. Public health outreach programs act to reduce contraction educational programs that inform on the benefits of measures such as HIV prevention, sanitation, and immunization and safe motherhood.

Every month, approximately 1,300 youth access our counseling and education services.

We are expanding family planning by linking with government programs to teach about norplant, vasectomy, circumcisions, IUD insertion and expanded condom use.

We started a youth services initiative that provides health education and recreational activities for youth.

UNDER 5 CLINIC

In response to the high rate of child mortality in Malawi, newborns from the maternity ward program and children under 5 in the communities are referred to the pediatric clinic which provides access to post-maternity services, check-up services, immunization, and nutrition counseling for families.

AN AVERAGE OF 22 CHILDREN
UNDER THE AGE OF ONE
ARE FULLY IMMUNIZED EACH MONTH.
