The Programme

The Malawi Gender Based Violence Prevention and Response Programme is funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID) and delivered by Coffey in a consortium with Social Development Direct and Plan International. The programme runs from November 2018 to November 2024, split into an initial three month inception period (November 2018 to February 2019), and then a two phase implementation period.
