Chipatala cha pa Foni, Malawi’s “Health Center by Phone,” Improving Information Given about Pregnancy-related Symptoms
The Health Center by Phone, or Chipatala cha pa Foni (CCPF), was developed by Malawi’s Ministry of Health and Village Reach as a community-based hotline in the Balaka district of Malawi.
This brief describes an activity that is part of a larger portfolio of USAID-funded research led by the Advancing Postpartum Hemorrhage Care (APPHC) Partnership focused on the prevention, detection, and management of Postpartum Hemorrhage (PPH), which continues to be the biggest threat to childbearing women in Malawi.
As part of APPHC scoping activities and stakeholder consultations in April 2019, CCPF was identified as an existing national health strategy with potential for providing Malawi’s women and their families important PPH information.
