In 2016, I-TECH Malawi joined The Kuunika Project: Data for Action, a four-year program funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and implemented through the Government of Malawi and partners. It aims to establish a strong base of high-quality, routinely available data and an ingrained culture of data use among technicians and policy makers in the health sector, using HIV as a first use case.

Since 2003, I-TECH Malawi has provided technical assistance to the Malawi Ministry of Health and partners to support national health systems strengthening initiatives and a timely national HIV response through the implementation of robust prevention, care, and treatment strategies along the care continuum. Through PEPFAR support, I-TECH has made significant contributions to the country’s capacity to develop a competent health care workforce and administer quality HIV prevention, care, and treatment programs.
