Among other concerns, the participants cited shortage of essential drugs. The documentation will also lead to the production of a compendium on health rights concerns from the people of Karonga and Chitipa.

After the ADC meeting, the team then met with the District Health Officer for Chitipa District to appreciate some of the issues raised.
