The purpose of the survival component is to ensure that all children in Malawi reach their 5th birthday and thereafter grow and realise their full potential. Interventions aimed at saving children’s lives will be explored and supported in the areas of water, sanitation and hygiene, HIV/AIDS, health and nutrition to protect children from diseases and risks that deter or affect their survival. Behaviour change practices will also be supported to ensure that no woman dies while giving life and that newly born babies stay alive and grow up healthily.
