Household Water Treatment and Safe Storage in Malawi: Stakeholder’s Consultative Workshop on the Development of a National Action Plan

April 18, 2013
Lilongwe, Malawi
Convened by Malawi Ministry of Health

On 18 April, 2013, in Lilongwe, the Ministry of Health hosted a Stakeholders’ Consultative Workshop on the Development of a National Action Plan on Household Water Treatment and Safe Storage in Malawi. Stakeholders in Malawi from organizations involved in health and development efforts discussed these strategic areas: enabling environment, public-private partnerships, inter-sector coordination, implementation, advocacy, integration, promotion, monitoring and evaluation and research.

From the discussions, 16 recommendations for further action by MoH, MWDI, NGOs and private sector emerged. The Ministry of Health has committed to reviewing the feedback and recommendations outlined in this report, and to revising the National Action Plan accordingly. Stakeholders are invited to continue their dialogue with government officials on the continuing development of the National Action Plan.

The Water Institute at UNC provided communications and facilitation support to the workshop, including the preparation of the follow-up report, with funding from Procter & Gamble’s Children’s Safe Drinking Water Program.
