The Scotland Malawi Partnership have produced this practical resource on the challenges of per diems in health partnerships.

Practical Advice & Support on Per Diems


An increasing number of members of the Scotland Malawi Partnership (SMP) and our sister organisation in Malawi, the Malawi Scotland Partnership (MaSP), have commented on the challenges per diems (daily payments for those participating) have brought their Scotland-Malawi links. It is, without doubt, a sensitive area in which there are a range of views on whether to pay such allowances or not. The SMP has consulted a great many members in Scotland and Malawi in the development of this document which seeks to share members’ experiences, outline our thinking as a network, offer some practical advice and recommendations, and signpost on to wider sources of information.
