Lilongwe Unit

Lilongwe Unit is located in the Central Region of Malawi in the Capital City of Malawi.  Its premises are located within Bwaila District Hospital formerly known as Bottom Hospital.

Lilongwe Unit of MAP counts for four services.  There is a team that goes out almost every day of the week visiting 108 clinics in the month.  This team is headed by a Physiotherapist in collaboration with Rehabilitation Technician.  Most of the clinics are visited monthly, some bi-monthly.  This team is called Outreach Services, another team headed by a Rehabilitation Technician is based in selected districts, they conduct visits in those localized district and this service is called Decentralisation.  All these clinics, patients are treated with exercises and information if given on how to cope up with their disability and sometimes appliances are measured which are produced in the workshop which forms the third service.  Lastly the fourth service is Orthopaedic section which has an outpatient department (OPD) & Ward.

Lilongwe Unit covers the whole of Central Region of Malawi which has 9 districts namely:-  Lilongwe, Mchinji, Dowa, Kasungu, Ntchisi, Nkhotakota, Salima, Ntcheu & Dedza.

In all the above districts, our Outreach Service team and Decentralisation staff visit all Government Hospitals and Health Centres as well as Mission Hospitals.  Because of the distance covered from Lilongwe where our office is located to nearest district, and looking at the amount of time taken to effectively treat the clients, an idea came about of decentralizing some of the districts so that patients could be visited frequently unlike once a month or bi-monthly as if happens in some of the districts.  This was also one way of cutting costs.

Workshop(Headed by a Foreman)
Our workshop forms an integral part of our Unit.  The workshop produces appliances which include neurodevelopment aids; - such as baby walker, cp chairs, standing frames:  Walking aids; - which include crutches & walking sticks and Mobility aids;- wheelchairs & tricycles, protective wears such as footpads, hand pads, clogs orthosis calipers etc.

Last year we managed to produce 25 wheelchairs and tricycles only, due to lack of production materials.  At the moment the list of clients waiting to receive these mobility aids is 113

Orthopaedic OPD & Wards
This department is headed by Orthopaedic Clinical Officer.  They conduct OPD clinics from Monday to Friday except Tuesdays which are operating days.  Patients admitted at our Ward are either referred by our outreach team which identify them when they go out during their visits or some are referred from District Hospitals since it acts as a referral for difficult orthopaedic cases.  Some of these patients are seen once a month by a visiting Surgeon from Beit Cure International Hospital.  Cases commonly managed at our orthopaedic clinic include;- TB of bones, Osteomyelitis, Dislocations, Cleft lip etc.  We do also have a Talipes clinic every Friday where manipulation and casting of children with such deformities is done.
