Malawian-UK Nurses Association (MUNAA) 

ABOUT US

We are nurses of Malawian origin, permanently resident in the United Kingdom (UK). We are self-organizing and self-governing, with a common interest. We share a passion for health and for empowering our membership. We strive to achieve excellence in our daily lives and the community we serve.

BACKGROUND

Covid-19 experiences have exposed our vulnerability and fragility as Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) frontline workers. We are undisputedly part of the backbone of the National Health Service (NHS), and unmeasurably contribute our knowledge and skills to the NHS. Also, from the training we acquired both from Malawi and the UK, we are well-positioned to understand the health plight of Malawi as a country. There has been significant interest and demand by Malawian-UK Registered Nurses, Midwives and Health Visitors seeking to reach beyond just caring for our families and the NHS here in the UK, but go further to do our part by giving back to mother Malawi. It is against this background that the charitable organisation Malawi-UK Nurses Association was formed.

VISION

Malawian-UK Nurses Association is committed to providing a unified voice, support and advocacy to its members. As an independent charitable association, MUNA envisages addressing public health policy issues, by providing high quality, accessible and equitable health services to all the people, in collaboration with our local international stakeholders.

GOAL

MUNA aims to improve access to essential healthcare services for all Malawians and to contribute towards the health of communities in Malawi and UK in accordance with the global commitment to attain Universal Health Coverage (UHC) by 2030. In order to advance and facilitate the implementation of MUNA’s objectives, the association will engage in and support sponsorship for needs assessed projects.
