CONCLUSION Health Services
Malawi is a patriarchy society in which women have little or no say in issues that affect them or the community. There is need to create awareness through women’s voices on rights of women within mining societies and spearhead a process of addressing women rights violations in these societies.
Malawi has a vast amount of resources, if well managed, they can transform the lives of its people. And to achieve this, we all need to work together.
