In 2013, CDI began constructing three health centers to serve more than 132,000 people in the Kasungu and Mchinji districts of Malawi.

In collaboration with the Malawian Ministry of Health, CDI established the Anchor Farm Health Centers program in 2013 to provide quality health care access and facilities to staff, their families, and the surrounding underserved populations. In addition to reducing the distance to the nearest health center, the program will improve access to family planning, nutritional advice, HIV/AIDS care, maternal and child health care, mother to child transmission protection, and community education and mobilization for sustainable health practices. CDI is working in collaboration with the Malawian Ministry of Health to construct, equip, and staff these health centers. In April 2016, CDI’s first Anchor Farm Health Center opened for service at Santhe. Since opening, the clinic has seen tens of thousands of patients.

Rural communities face daily health concerns such as malnutrition, HIV/AIDS, malaria, and diarrhea. Health facilities are typically understaffed, lack essential medical supplies, and are distant from the households they serve. CDI established the Anchor Farm Health Centers program in 2013 to provide quality health care access and facilities to staff, their families, and the surrounding underserved populations. The first of three clinics will serve more than 132,000 people in the Kusungu and Mchinji districts in Malawi.

The project aims to improve health care infrastructure and provide training through complete delivery of Malawi's essential health plan. Additionally, CDI will focus on nutrition within communities. The rate of nutritional stunting, or chronic malnutrition, for Malawian children under 5 is 47%—one of the highest rates in the world. Nutritional wellbeing is an important component of good health, in both a preventive and curative sense. CDI is working to emphasize home and community gardens as well as increase knowledge around essential practices for good nutrition, with a particular focus on children and pregnant and lactating women.
