With the support of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Global Integrity launched a health systems strengthening project in collaboration with the African Health Innovation Centre (AHIC) and local partners to leverage participatory systems thinking approaches (PSTA) as a method to address various local health challenges.
In Malawi, Global Integrity partnered with Ipas Malawi to spend a 12 month period addressing challenges related to adolescent sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), especially regarding access to safe, legal abortion. In November 2021, Global Integrity, AHIC, and Ipas Malawi held an initial in-person workshop experience, with a follow-up workshop held in March 2022.
The following report summarises the primary activities and content/process learnings from the second workshop experience. This report has been produced by the African Health Innovation Centre for Global Integrity, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and IPAS Malawi.
