Expanding to Serve More
Use of the service has increased significantly since its launch in 2011. CCPF currently covers nine districts in Malawi and is accessible to over 5 million people.
With the support and partnership of Africa’s largest mobile carrier, Airtel, CCPF continues to grow toward national scale. The Malawi Ministry of Health (MoH) endorses CCPF and is currently in the process of transitioning operations from NGO VillageReach to the Ministry with the goal of completing national scale up of Airtel CCPF to all districts by the end of 2018. An official Memorandum of Understanding has been signed with the Ministry of Health, laying out the government’s commitment to fully own and operate the service.
Contributions from strategic partners and individual donors support the infrastructure improvements and partnership development required for scaling.
