Chitetezo Mbaula cookstove value chain in Dedza District Malawi ab 55.9 EURO A detailed analysis
Chitetezo Mbaula (or a protecting stove in Chichewa) is part of a cocktail of improved cookstoves earmarked for scaling in Malawi.By the year 2020, the government of Malawi has a vision of two million homes using improved cookstoves. Chitetezo Mbaula cookstove is made from pottery clay soil and by mostly women groups in Dedza District as an income generating project. By using the stove, women and children are able to reduce indoor pollution, firewood collection time, and deforestation amongst many benefits that the stove offers. However production groups, mostly made up of women were collapsing soon after NGOs pulled out their financial support. This book illustrates why this was happening and what could be done to reverse such developments is such projects. Of the five production groups that were randomly sampled out of nine in the district, only one was making profits at wholesale prices. The book also shows how the value chain system of Chitetezo Mbaula cookstove benefited village promoters at the expense of production groups. The book, and the analysis, is very useful for biomass energy project professionals and for rural goods value chain developers in the global south.
Burkitt's lymphoma is a mature B-cell non-Hdgkin's lymphoma that is the fastest growing human tumour with a doubling time of 24 to 48 hours. It accounts for 40% to 50% of all the childhood tumours in Malawi. The purpose of this study was to determine the orofacial manifestations of Malawian children with BL with the hope that the findings will help in the education of oral and other health care professionals in the early detection of BL for prompt referral. Oral health professionals are a critical component of the referral chain since these lesions can be life threatening. However, the survival of the child depends on rapid diagnosis and treatment. In this study, the orofacial features of BL included intraosseous mass, jaw swelling (unilateral or bilateral), loose/ mobile teeth, displaced teeth, trismus, jaw deviation, Bell's palsy, salivation, cervical/ submandibular lymphadenopathy, gingival enlargement, gingival growth, diffulties with breathing, eating and speech and, jaw swelling.
Most studies of doing business at the "bottom of the economic pyramid" focus on viewing the poor as consumers, as micro-entrepreneurs, or as potential employees of local companies. Almost no analysis focuses on the poor as primary producers of agricultural commodities a striking omission given that primary producers are by far the largest segment of the working-age population in developing economies.Making Markets More Inclusive bridges the management literature with original research on agricultural value chains in developing and emerging economies. This exciting work is the first to delve into the skills, capabilities, strategies and approaches needed for inclusive value chain development. McKague shows how NGOs and companies can connect poor producers in developing economies with the right markets to better create social and economic impact. He also analyzes one of the leading agricultural value chain initiatives in the world, which is being replicated by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in several different value chains in Malawi, Tanzania, Ghana, India, and Mali.Want more?
