Impact Mitigation

This section contains various documentation guiding the impact mitigation programs for Malawi in relation to HIV and AIDS. The high prevalence of HIV for Malawi has also impacted the livelihood of many Malawians. Many families have faced severe income disruption through the death of one or both parents, children, or other breadwinners in the family. Moreover, some people that are infected with HIV still face problems accessing treatment or maintaining a normal life.

The impact mitigation strategies are important to ensure that the burden of HIV at individual, family, community and national level is lessened. Different organizations with the leadership of the Malawi government through the National Aids Commission (NAC) have developed several guiding documents to assist program implementers and designers to deliberately focus on priority areas, as identified at the national level through comprehensive consultative processes. Orphans and other vulnerable children are the primary audiences for impact mitigation interventions. Some documents available in this section include:  IGA Assessment Report, Orphans and Vulnerable Children Apprentice Training Strategy Final Report, Impact Mitigation Conceptual Framework, and the OVC Strategy Final Report.
