About Malawi

Malawi is one of the poorest countires in the world with only 10% of the population having access to electricity. In a developing country like Malawi, the burden of stroke is often higher because the stroke victim may be supporting many members of the family. 

In the developed world, with the advent of stroke units and improvements in prevention, the incidence of new strokes is decreasing whereas unfortunately in developing countries like Malawi, the number of strokes each year is increasing.
