Etandweni Health Post

Case Study: Etandweni Health Post

The Etandweni Health Post, located in the Mzimba district of Malawi, was a derelict facility providing child immunisations, general health advice and family planning services.


Since completing a refurbishment in 2011, Globe sought the assistance of local groups to boost the capacity of the facility.

In January 2012, advice from the Australia Africa Mining Industry Group led to a successful grant application for A$29,000 from the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade to install solar electricity and a vaccine fridge at the Health Post.


In addition, a scoping exercise undertaken in Malawi, with the assistance of Professor Mark Jones, Director of the Global Health Alliance of WA, identified a number of development options for health focused corporate social responsibility.
