The Scotland Chikhwawa Health Initiative hosted a series of events entitled My Life, My Choice.

A series of sport, drama, dance and debate events highlighted the impact on young people's lives of peer pressure and economic demands, and the educational opportunities they could take to help fulfil their potential.

Scots students performed plays to an audience which included Humphreys Masuku and Dr. Rabson Kachala from Malawi's Ministry of Health, and later received a tour of the University of Malawi campus in Blantyre.
