The Media Institute of Southern Africa (MISA) Malawi

Since its establishment in 1996, the Media Institute of Southern Africa (MISA) Malawi has implemented a number of projects, with funding from local and international partners, focusing on various fields, including elections, law review, economics, health and environment.

The flagship programme for MISA Malawi has been media freedom monitoring, which culminates in annual state-of-the-media reports. Through its activities, MISA Malawi has acquired an enormous amount of organisational capacity, in both financial and project management, over the past ten years. 

Among other projects, MISA Malawi has undertaken the revival of the Media Council of Malawi. MISA Malawi funded the initial national consultative meeting that conceptualised the revival. It also conceptualised and spearheaded formation of the Journalists Union of Malawi (JUMA).

MISA Malawi has also worked with several institutions such as the College of Medicine and the Malawi Health Equity Network to promote health rights through the media.

Other donors and cooperating partners that MISA Malawi has worked include, National AIDS Commission (NAC), NORAD, the British High Commission, the Public Affairs Section of the American Embassy, the Malawi/German Programme for Democracy and Decentralisation (under GTZ), UNICEF, Panos Southern Africa and the Ministry of Information and Civic Education.
