Policies

Welcome to the HIV and AIDS Policy and Guidelines Toolkit for Malawi. Take time to look at the policies existing in Malawi that guide HIV and AIDS programming. Most of the HIV and AIDS policies are developed at a national level but with comprehensive consultations with implementers and other affected groups. Some policies and guidelines are also an adaptation of other international recommendations on specific areas or themes. Such recommendations are provided by UNAIDS, World Health Organization, research results or other regionally agreed proposals.

This section contains the HIV and AIDS policy for Malawi and also a draft of the HIV and AIDS bill developed with support from the Malawi Law Commission, Policy of Equity Access to ART. Malawi’s HIV and AIDS programming is guided by the existing policies; any implementation of new activities on HIV and AIDS must be aligned with the related policies and guidelines. The policies and guidelines are intended for program designers and implementers and those conducting different research in the field of HIV and AIDS.
