The Malawi project takes to the airwaves

Our project with the Society of Haemophilia and Allied Disorders (SHAD) in Malawi has just entered a new phase.

Our fantastic volunteers, Susan, Joan, and Lawrence, have already delivered 19 training sessions in hospitals across Malawi.  As a result an amazing 343 healthcare professionals in Malawi now know how to identify potential bleeding disorders cases and where to refer them.

diagnose-malawi-posterThere work is now being supported by a public awareness campaign.  A thousand posters will be displayed in hospitals or clinics and awareness is being raised with radio adverts which you can hear above.

As a result of this project people with bleeding disorders in Malawi are getting a laboratory diagnosis for the first time.

Thank you to everyone who has already supported the project.  If you would like to support this work please donate online or text “MALA31 £5” (or the amount you’d like to donate) to 70700.

We are grateful to the Scottish Government for their funding of this project.
