The Kamuzu University of Health Sciences (KUHeS) is a new University formed by merging College of Medicine and Kamuzu College of Nursing and is established by an Act of Parliament (No. 20 of 2019). It is a comprehensive health and allied sciences University that trains health professionals who are globally competent and locally relevant.

The University’s School of Public Health and Family Medicine, houses the Health Economics and Policy Unit (HEPU) in the of Department of Health Systems and Policy. The HEPU in partnership with the University of Bergen and in collaboration with the Ministry of Health is implementing the Bergen Centre for Ethics and Priority Setting – Malawi Project. The project is in two work streams which aim at strengthen Ministry of Health’s (MOH’s) capacity in the implementation of the Economic Health Package (EHP). The first work stream will assess the effectiveness of mechanisms for measurement of policy uptake and adoption at the national and district levels. This will involve reviewing barriers to implementation of the EHP at all levels of service delivery and recommending potential reforms.

The second work stream will support data collection for a PhD student registered with the University of Bergen under the project. He/She will undertake a series of EHP studies under the title “Thinking beyond the EHP: Frameworks for increasing resource allocation efficiency and health service utilization in Malawi”. This will involve sub-studies namely: 1) Fixation versus Traction for Fracture Reduction: A Cost Effectiveness Analysis; 2) Public Financing of Surgical Services: An Extended Cost Effectiveness Analysis for Malawi; and 3) Informal Payments for Healthcare and the Distribution of Health Benefits.

Results from both work streams will contribute to improving health service delivery goals of efficiency, quality and access and ultimately Universal health coverage by developing and implementing the next generation of health benefit designs for Malawi and; contributing to optimal and equitable resource allocation, and use.
