Over the past two years, the Health Policy Project (HPP) has been working with religious organizations
(mother bodies) in Malawi to organize districtwide “Population Weekends.” The purpose of these weekends is for communities to hear about population and development issues, including family planning (FP), in their places of worship. In March and April 2015, HPP worked with the Institute of Public Opinion and Research (IPOR) to conduct public polling in two districts (Salima and Thyolo) to see if any insights could be gleaned to inform future design and implementation of FP programs. The findings in this brief are drawn from a survey of 754 respondents that took place in March 2015 (before implementation of population weekend activities).
