"We believe that through these programmes mothers are receiving first-hand information on what is expected of them in as far as the reduction of malnutrition amongst under fives is concerned," said UNICEF Malawi Chief of Communications, Victor Chinyama.
UNICEF officials say it has been very important to take health care services closer to where people live, thereby significantly reducing the distance that people have to travel to access medical treatment in Malawi.
"In Malawi, many district hospitals are very far from most villages, which previously forced many mothers to walk very long distances. But now people can get medical care right where they are, and mothers seeking child healthcare can access it right away," said Chinyama.

Victor Chinyama, communications chief for UNICEF Malawi, says the change is aimed largely at giving the initiative a touch of democracy.
...
As a result, explains Chinyama, UNICEF will channel all support through MACRA for the organization of the event, instead of supporting the local broadcasters directly.
In the past many broadcasters considered the ICDB to be a UNICEF day - they didn't really see it as their day, said Chinyama. "Hopefully by transferring the ICDB from UNICEF to MACRA, we will reach a stage where broadcasters consider the ICDB to be their day and will be able to devote the necessary time and resources to make it even more successful," he said.
...
While Chinyama welcomes these transformations, he also looks back with pride at the success of the event.
"ICDB has been over the years the day everyone looks forward to - a day where children take to the airwaves to present issues and share opinions in their own language. he said. "It has offered a break from regular programming."
Chinyama explains that the initiative has proved to the world that with the right platform children can effectively express their opinions and share issues in a comprehensible way.

Unicef Zimbabwe chief of communications Victor Chinyama told Engineering News Online that the survey would form the basis of a $57-million large-scale water, sanitation and hygiene (Wash) project in selected rural areas in Matabeleland North, Matabeleland South, Midlands, Masvingo and Mashonaland West.
"The objective is to reduce the proportion of people without access to safe water and sanitation in the 33 districts by 25%," he said.
...
Chinyama added that the maintenance and repair of water and sanitation facilities had ceased over the past ten years, resulting in a sharp deterioration of the facilities.
"Many community water point committees, who manage water points at a local level, have stagnated and pump minders are no longer employed. A 2004 inventory of water and sanitation services estimated that 75% of the 47 000 hand pumps in the country were not functional," he explained.
Further, subsidies for the sanitation sector had "dried up", hampering the construction of new facilities.
"With ageing superstructures, full latrine pits, [and the] unavailability and unaffordability of cement, about 48% of people in rural communities have resorted to open defecation," Chinyama said.
