#EndTaxHavens Now: The Story from Malawi

Malawi is one of the world’s poorest countries, with half of its 16 million people living in poverty. The health system is seriously under-resourced with shortages of staff and vital medicines. Public spending per primary-school child is among the world’s lowest.

Tax revenue that should be helping to fund these public services in Malawi and other poor countries is disappearing at an alarming rate. Almost a third (30%) of African financial wealth – a total of $500bn – is held offshore in tax havens.

Meet Nellie, a teacher, and Vitumbiko, a nurse, as they tell us how tax dodging is fuelling inequality and poverty in Malawi.
