Carrying Malawi Forward: Investing in Sexual and Reproductive Health for Young People (English)

This presentation was developed in consultation with the Ministry of Finance, Economic Planning and Development, the Ministry of Youth and Sports, the National Youth Council of Malawi, and a national-level advisory group comprised of population specialists, reproductive health professionals, youth advocates, and young people. The presentation was supported by USAID Malawi under the Informing Decisionmakers to Act (IDEA) project.

“Carrying Malawi Forward” is available with and without a voiceover in English and in Chichewa. The presentation can be downloaded on the PRB website or streamed via PRB’s YouTube channel; CD-ROMs are also available on request. A user’s guide and key messages handout (in English and Chichewa) are also available to provide facilitators with skills and resources to effectively deliver the presentation. Guidance on the technical aspects and requirements of ENGAGE presentations is also available.


With funding from the U.S. Agency for International Development, IDEA—Informing Decisionmakers to Act—increases support among policy audiences for effective health and population programs around the world. By increasing the flow of accurate, understandable information about population, family planning, and reproductive health to policy audiences, IDEA enhances efforts carried out by civil society, the public sector, the development community, and donors. Under IDEA, PRB has developed a series of dynamic multimedia ENGAGE presentations to engage global leaders and country-level policymakers in issues related to family planning, reproductive health, and other key development issues.

Malawi District Infographic Fact Sheets

While there are a lot of data available to support population advocacy efforts, there is little capacity to use the data to inform policy audiences and support prioritizing population in the national development agenda. PRB worked in consultation with the Population Unit of the Division of Development Planning at the Ministry of Finance, Economic Planning and Development and the Family Planning Association of Malawi  to develop infographic fact sheets on population and development indicators for all 28 districts in Malawi. These fact sheets are resource materials and were disseminated during the roll-out of Malawi’s revised population policy in 2013 and during media trainings.
