Malawi Private Health Sector Mapping Report

The Strengthening Health Outcomes through the Private Sector (SHOPS) project undertook a private provider mapping exercise to describe the size, scope, and geographic distribution of private health providers in the country. As part of the mapping, SHOPS collected data on provider characteristics and services offered, and asked providers to identify obstacles to expanding their businesses. The report is based on information collected from 763 facilities (including 94 pharmacies) and 2,492 providers and includes maps conveying information about different types of private facilities, including:

  • Density of private facilities
  • Locations of different types of private facilities
  • Locations of facilities offering family planning services
  • Locations of facilities offering HIV services
  • Locations of facilities with affiliations to larger networks or organizations
  • Locations of facilities by number of providers per facility
