CEDEP engaged with the Ministry of Justice of Malawi and the Malawi Human Rights Commission to discuss and address the decriminalization of homosexuality as well as discrimination targeted to trans people and non-conforming identities.

According to CEDEP, a referendum is not the best way since LGBTI people are a minority in the country. The best strategy is to rather document and highlight the harms caused by these laws to LGBTI people.

CEDEP works collaboratively with various civil society organisations in Malawi and also abroad. It is on the lead of LGBTI issues in the country.
