Mzuni student elected president of Malawian Midwives

Mzuzu University’s fourth year nursing student Charles Amos has been elected new country representative for the Association of Malawian Midwives, and has immediately expressed his commitment towards bettering the “conditions” of both graduates and midwives still pursuing their studies in the country’s institutions of higher learning.

Amos was elected at the association’s annual general meeting last Wednesday at Golden Peacock Hotel in the capital Lilongwe and will be at the helm of the position for the next year.

He said he considered his election as a “historic” honour, adding he would also use it to start up serious debate that would, in general, help in changing the country’s health facilities for the better.

“Our access to quality health conditions remains a non-starter in our country,” he said, “as a young person, who is not only passionate about health conditions but is also pursuing studies in nursing and midwifery I will make sure I mobilize my fellow students and youths to add a voice that can help our country.”

Malawi, one of the most impoverished countries in the world – with people surviving on less than a dollar a day – has one of the most pathetic rates towards access to quality health care.

The country has one public tertiary institution that trains doctors – the College of Medicine. But lately graduates have fled the country to other places because of government’s failure to employ them on the basis on an ailing economy.

Amos highlighted there was need for the country’s leaders to show “extra interest” towards the health care.

The 23 year old also holds a Diploma of Business Administration from The Polytechnic and is Mzuni Chapter Amami President.

He hails from Gumbi Village, Traditional Authority Chimaliro in Thyolo district.
