Malawi’s landmark 2020 election and peaceful transition of power is a shining example of democracy for the region and the world. Building on this democratic momentum, the United States is working alongside the Government of  Malawi and civil society to ensure that democracy delivers by providing high quality public services, using scarce public resources efficiently, preventing and penalizing corruption, and safeguarding human rights. We partner with Malawian institutions to strengthen democratic processes such as elections and legislation, as well as governance issues that affect sustainable development in the health, education, agriculture, and natural resource
management sectors.
