Malawi

Country Situation

Adults HIV prevalence in Malawi decreased was  approximately 10% in 2014 with 60,000 pregnant women living with HIV delivering in the same year.  Between 2009 and 2014, Malawi experienced a 53% decline in the number of new paediatric HIV infections.

In 2014, 64% of pregnant women living with HIV received ART. However, it is important to note that the paediatric program has not improved in parallel with PMTCT. 18% of infants receive an EID test and 30%of children living with HIV received treatment.

In July 2011, Malawi was one of the first countries in sub-Saharan Africa to implement  integrated clinical HIV guidelines including WHO Option B+.  A costed PMTCT scale up plan (2008-2015) is in place.

Country Milestones

  • In Progress

    Countries have conducted an expenditure analysis, harmonized expenditure categories as needed, identified financing gaps in their action plans and have develped and begun to implement a strategy increasing financial assistance from domestic and international sources to support the national EMTCT plan.

    National EMTCT plans are costed.

    National guidelines on PMTCT and infant feeding in line with WHO 2010 recommended guidelines on ARVs for PMTCT.

    National annual EMTCT progress report includes community (civil society) analysis of progress and feedback from civil society is reflected in revisions to national EMTCT operational plans. Community engagement milestone has been revised and will be reported in June 2013.

    Baselines for essential commodity needs for EMTCT have been established.

    Relevant support and management capacity has been increased (IATT focal points in place).

    Policy review has been conducted to dentralize and task shift essential HIV activities to the primary care and community levels.

    Country has reported on estimated number of new HIV infections among children averted and number of mothers kept alive.

    Estimated number of new pediatric infections reduced by 50% from 2009 levels in at least 10 priority countries.

    Relevant targets met in at least 50% of districts in the country.

    Every district reports regular supplies of drugs and commodities without stock outs.
