The Regional coordinator (Dr Sabina Wakasiaka) visited both Blantyre and Lilongwe during the first week of March 2019 to support the Malawi Team Leader (Professor Angela Chimwaza) and Research Assistants (Chisomo Petross and Isabella Chisuse) in the development of the action plan interventions for the stillbirth audit.
