[Perspectives] Address Malata: advancing nursing and midwifery in Malawi

As a former nurse and midwife, and currently Principal of Kamuzu College of Nursing (KCN), part of the University of Malawi, Address Malata knows the health-care landscape well in her home country. Some half a century after independence from the UK, Malawi is struggling to cope with high maternal and infant mortality, 10% adult population HIV prevalence, and a median life expectancy of under 60 years. “Malawi is a beautiful country, with its stunning lake, peaceful population, with everyone smiling, even when it’s raining”, she says.
