About this Event

Endemic throughout Malawi, malaria remains a leading cause of death for pregnant women and children under 5. A tremendous strain on the health system, malaria accounts for about 34% of all outpatient visits and 18% of all hospital deaths in Malawi.

Through the USAID-funded Organized Network of Services for Everyone’s Health (ONSE) Activity, MSH is assisting Malawi’s National Malaria Control Program to provide high-quality malaria services at the facility and community levels in 10 districts, covering nearly a third of the country.

Our team in Malawi will share recent results on strengthening malaria services through Outreach Training and Supportive Supervision (OTSS).

Designed to provide ongoing support to clinicians, data, and laboratory staff, OTSS combines a standardized checklist with targeted mentorship and supportive supervision to identify areas for improvement and strengthen clinical and diagnostic services in health facilities.

This webinar will share lessons learned on how the application of OTSS, as part of broader quality assurance systems, impacts staff performance and improves the provision and quality of malaria services.

This is the fifth in our webinar series, Quality of Care: An Essential Pillar to Achieve Universal Health Coverage for Women, Children, and Adolescents. The series explores practical experiences and lessons for improving the quality of care along the continuum of health services that reach women, children, and adolescents.
