Parent and Health Initiative (Pachi) in partnership with Ministry of Health and Unicef have drilled 50 people in Neno District in social accountability.
Speaking on the sidelines of the training on Friday, Neno district Pachi coordinator Russell Msiska said they wanted to empower community members to track public projects.
He said: “We are running Bwalo Initiative, a social accountability tool we introduced to track issues affecting vulnerable people.
“We also empower people to know how they can prevent themselves from catching malaria.”
In a separate interview, Neno district health and promotion officer Carolyn Banda said Pachi has created awareness on malaria prevention.
On his part, Chekucheku Area Development Committee chairperson Jonas Goliati said they will encourage people to hold duty-bearers accountable on public projects.
The two-day workshop drew participants from Chekucheku and Mlauli traditional authorities in the district.
