Malawi is experiencing shortage of medical personnel.

The contingent of the h ealth workers are in the country with support from Rotary International and they are expected to assist 300 patients at Kamuzu Central Hospital within 10 days..

Rotary Club will spend K60 million over the exercise.

Christopher Kapenda, Lilongwe Rotary Club president confirmed to Nyasa Times that his organisation has brought in the medical doctors to implement government effort in its provision of quality health services.

“These doctors will assist a lot in lessening problems that patients are facing at Kamuzu Central Hospital since there are some patients who have been in hospital for long just to wait for the surgeon,” said Kapenda.

Kamuzu Central Hospital Director Dr Jonathan Ngoma has since hailed Lilongwe Rotary Club for the gesture.

“On behalf of Ministry of Health I would like to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation for this wonderful gesture of service above self,truly reflecting the Rotary motto, receive our sincere appreciation for this timely charitable cause,” he said.

The mission consists of general surgeons, dermatologists, dentists, gynaecologists, entists, Urologists, orthopaedicians, anaesthetists.

Rajendra Saboo past Rotary International President and David Hilton are leading the team.

    Why not take that 60 million and divide it amongst the 300 patients. Trust me that will cure them for life. This is whats needed

    Yes! I need these doctors from India, may be they can heal my HIV since our doctors here in malawi are not trained enough they are failing their job, why should peole be dying of HIN/AIDS each and every day when doctors are there.

    The problem is that the government is even making it hard for doctors to practice in Malawi. Many Malawians study medicine abroad but instead of going back to Malawi, knowing they are going to go through a lot of bureaucratic difficulties, they rather stay abroad and practice there.

    Most of doctors who come from Asia in such large numbers are fake,they like going to either kamuzu central hospital or mzuzu central,never shall you hear that they are going to QECH,why? because they are scared of being discovered of their fakeness at QECH as itd a teaching hospital with lots of internationally recognized doctors and professors.

  8. solution to critical shortage of qualified staff in the health system, is to be training more and retaining them. Komanso kumawapasa zowayenereza kuti azigwirira ntchito. Ngati ndikunama tsutsani. Izi nzabwino koma zilibe tsogolo. Tidzikuposani madokotala anthu a m’midzi ngati ifeyo ndithu. Dziko lomvetsa chisoni la Malawi

    This is highly commendable. I wish they were here for a longer period. On the other hand, Government can engage these people on occasional visits which will end up being cheaper and of benefit to many sick people than the privileged few who benefit from the referral system.

    Any patients who are seeking medical attention from specialists in the field of Plastic surgery, ENT, Gynecology, Eye, Dental, Orthopedic, Dermatology, Urology and General Surgery are urged to come to KCH and meet our specialists from India.
    The specialists are at KCH till 16 September and would like to help as many patients as possible!

      Your idea of scholarships is very good. But what do we do in the interim? I guess we cant run away from the short term solutions while awaiting the fulfillment of the long term ones.
