Home to nearly 18 million people, the East African country of Malawi is one of the poorest in the world.

Today approximately 1 million Malawians are living with HIV/AIDS, the country’s leading cause of death. Other widespread health problems include malaria, tuberculosis, schistosomiasis, and high infant and maternal mortality.
