Representatives of maternal health program being implemented in Malawi’s four districts have disclosed to have so far spent over MK2 billion.

This follows provision of cash bonuses to expectant women, health workers, infrastructure development as well as procurement of medical supplies to participating health facilities.

The revelation comes as the Malawi government under Ministry of Health is implementing a maternal health program with financial support from the governments of Norway and.

Speaking to Capital FM, the Deputy Program Director revealed that so far over 100, 000 expectant women have benefited in the conditional cash transfer with over MK600 million disbursed to them.

Reagan Kaluluma further adds that money totaling to MK849 Million has been spent on infrastructure expenses in all the four districts.

He however disclosed the program still faces constraints pointing out staff attrition which is high, delay in infrastructure and procurement of medical equipment among others.

“Some communities do not understand the target criteria hence create the myth that the money is associated with spiritualism,” added Kaluluma

The project dubbed Results Based Financing for Maternal and Neonatal Health (RBF4MNH) is being implemented in 33 health facilities in Ntcheu, Dedza, Mchinji and Balaka.

It is aimed at contributing to the reduction of maternal and neonatal deaths in the impact districts.

This is so through provision of incentives inform of cash bonus to staff as well conditional cash transfer to expectant women in a bid to increase hospital deliveries.

Apart from that, the program also procures medical equipment besides infrastructure development to benefiting health facilities in a bid to improve quality health care.
