Karonga District Health Office (DHO) has hailed the National Initiative for Civic Education (NICE) for
helping to improve health service delivery in the district through the development of a Health Service Charter.

Community members with Luchenza Municipality have hailed the National initiative for Civic Education (NICE) for implementing a civic education project project which has enabled them to take to task duty bearers and service providers who abuse public funds meant for development.
Speaking in an interview, Group Village Headman Kanthawire explained that previously, many development activities failed to materialise because those responsible for implementing them were failing to work properly and the community did not take any steps to report the matter to relevant authorities.
Persons with disabilities have asked the Mzuzu City Council and other related authorities to consider in their development projects and other activities, the welfare of persons with disabilities, so that they, too, benefit optimally from services provided to the citizens.
