High Commissioner for Canada to Malawi, Eswatini and Mozambique, Caroline Delany on Friday October 8, 2021 appreciated Family Planning Association of Malawi (FPAM) work during her tour at Kang’oma Health Centre in Lilongwe.

The High Commissioner was briefed of the services that FPAM provides including provision of contraceptive methods to young people and the general population.

Among other things, she enquired the most preferred method of contraception among people that FPAM serves.

FPAM nurse Noliah Mwanza who was briefing the High Commissioner indicated that the most preferred contraception among women is Depo-Provera, Jadelle and Impanon.

On her part, UN Resident Coordinator Maria Jose Torres Macho who accompanied the High Commissioner, asked if men participate in family planning and the age at which young people start accessing contraception methods.

“We provide counselling to people including couples so that they can make an informed decision and discuss as a couple about contraceptive methods,’’ the nurse said.

FPAM Executive Director Donald Makwakwa added that the organization deliberately included youth Community Based Distribution Agents (CBDAs) so that they can reach out to their fellow youths with Sexual Reproductive Health (SRH) services.
