Dignitas International is a leader in the development of solutions for global health. Committed to innovation, Dignitas works with patients, health workers, researchers, and policymakers to tackle barriers to health care in resource-limited communities. Combining frontline expertise and rigorous research, Dignitas saves lives and upholds the right to health and dignity of the world’s most vulnerable by increasing access to care, strengthening health systems, and shaping health policy and practice.
Over the next three years, Dignitas will:
- Strengthen the HIV/AIDS referral clinic in Zomba, Malawi, which serves as Dignitas’s long-term program, research and development site. It is in Zomba where over 16,000 patients have been treated for HIV and over 500 health workers have been trained to date. Zomba has also served as the site for the development and implementation of innovations aimed at improving patient care and strengthening weak health systems.
- Expand HIV/AIDS services in five additional districts in Malawi, which will increase access to 3.1 million people, nearly one quarter of Malawi’s population.
- Provide training and ongoing mentorship to 2,000 health workers and health systems managers.
- Start an additional 40,000 adults and children on life-saving HIV treatment.
