One of the biggest challenges facing people in rural Malawi is access to satisfactory medical care. The majority of people live in rural villages, often a very long way and many hours from tar roads and public transport. This and the extreme poverty that these disadvantaged communities endure means that people are simply unable to seek medical attention or healthcare, even when vitally needed. We are working to address this issue by improving primary healthcare available in these villages through home based care initiatives and facilitating access to medical centres through provision of bicycle ambulances. Join our Malawi medical volunteer project http://www.volunteerafrica.com/Volunteer-Projects/lake-malawi-medical-volunteer-project/ and be a part of this important work.

Is Circumcision an effective way of addressing the spread of HIV in Sub-Saharan Africa? Medical male circumcision has been known to give males an illusion that they cannot contract HIV, hence they do not mind having unprotected sex, isn’t this conversely putting their female partners at risk in case the man is infected? Isn’t infant circumcision a human rights violation, considering that an infant does not give consent for the permanent surgical removal of their foreskin? How can you promote medical male circumcision while promoting abstinence at the same time? After attending the International AIDS Conference 2012 held between 22 and 27 July in Washington DC, Joab Frank Chakhaza produced this documentary in September 2012.

On 3 September 2016, Vice President (Surgical) Mike McKirdy and 16 senior clinicians from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow completed the 51 mile 5 ferry challenge to raise much needed funds to support medical training in Malawi. The funds raised will be used to both support Malawian healthcare professionals gain experience in the UK and to deliver educational courses in Malawi to meet needs identified by local health workers. Mike was interviewed before he embarked on the 5 ferry challenge – in his interview he discussed the long standing relationship between Scotland and Malawi and the difference he hopes we can make in supporting medical training there. Donations to the campaign are welcome at http://rcp.sg/malawifund
As a result of our support, the Nkhoma Hospital has been successfully recruiting and employing doctors, despite the need for doctors in more attractive and livable areas of Malawi and neighboring African countries. To function at its greatest capacity the indigenous doctor program needs continuing support. Doctor retention has been an issue in the past, but funding will ensure that these doctors are able to continue serving the poorest, while growing in their medical knowledge supported by advanced medical training courses.

This film shows the extraordinary pioneering work of The World Medical Fund in Malawi - one of the poorest countries on earth. For the past 12 years the WMF has reached out to the children in the most remote areas - where one child in five will die before its 5th birthday. A network of mobile clinics and volunteers and now a truck named 'help' - a fully equipped mobile operating theatre - are saving children's lives every day.
