How to Use QuickRes

QuickRes is a website that allows you to book appointments for health services in Malawi so you can live a healthy life! Unsure what services are right for you? Start by taking the simple 10-question risk assessment which will recommend services fit to your needs. After booking, save your appointment information and arrive at the clinic for your date and time for you to receive services and the next steps from a doctor.

Available Services
