Health information provision to rural communities in Malawi: research findings

Health information provision to rural communities in Malawi: research findings

International Journal of Information and Library Research 5(3): 143-153

This paper presents findings of research on health information provision to rural communities in Malawi based on two parallel surveys covering both the providers and consumers of health information. The results show that much of the information which is disseminated nationally does not reach the majority of the population and the little information that filters through is under-utilized.
