Comments on the Charter: 

We from Sustainable Rural Growth and Development Initiative in Malawi support the charter. The Charter should also look at religion beliefs as they affect health. Some beliefs have reduced the rights of children from accessing service just because the parent is in one religious sect that does not understand divine healing.The charter should look at this issue significantly.

Suggestions for the PHM: 
PHM should allow the mobilization of resources for all stakeholders to effectively adhere and implement activities in their localities. Communities members should be educated on the charter though PHM members and government should effectively work with PHM to ensure effective implementation of the commitments and monitor deviations from proposed interventions in the charter.
I endorse the People's Charter for Health:
