In 2017, Malawi’s National Condom Strategy for 2015–2020 was officially launched by the Ministry of Health and Population’s Department of HIV/AIDS. The strategy aims to improve the availability of and access to condoms for the purpose of preventing unintended pregnancies and preventing HIV and other sexually transmitted infections. This is particularly important in a country with a high fertility rate and unmet need for contraception, high HIV incidence, and regular stock-outs of condoms. To help rollout the strategy and ensure clear roles, responsibilities, and accountability, HP+ provided support to set-up condom coordination committees in five districts supporting local implementation and oversight. This brief details the process and lessons learned from those efforts to inform replication in additional districts.
