The Health Policy Project (HPP), with support from USAID and in cooperation with national policymakers and advocates, undertook a systematic assessment to better understand and document the current policy environment, along with the challenges and opportunities Malawi faces in implementing more gender-responsive population and family planning policies. The assessment included both a desk review of current policies, and a series of key informant interviews that sought also to assess the role and impact of gender stewardship mechanisms on sexual and reproductive health-related policies and programs, and to document first-hand perspectives on policy implementation.
