SRH Education

CISE Malawi believes investing in SRHR benefits all sectors (Health, Economy, Education, Agriculture, Water as well as Energy)

In Malawi, young people (10-24 years old) account for 32.3% of population but they still do not have access to SRH services appropriate to their age, even though they are the most exposed to SRH related risks. Adolescent fertility rate in Malawi is at (177 births per 1,000 women aged 15-19 years) and studies indicate that adolescents account for 20.6 % of all maternal deaths in the country. Induced abortion is the cause of between 5% and 18% of maternal deaths in this age group.
