Malawi's Ministry of Gender, Children, Disability and Social Welfare recognizes the breadth and seriousness of intimate partner violence and coordinates the national response to end this violence and strengthen support for survivors. To aid the ministry’s efforts, the Health Policy Project (funded by USAID and PEPFAR) reviewed research, program reports, and government documents to produce a profile of what is documented about intimate partner violence (and gender-based violence, more generally) in Malawi, how the problem has been handled to date, and where action is needed most urgently. The findings are the basis for this brief.
