Ministry of Health (MoH) Dr. Jean Kalilani has described the Pharmaceutical Supplies donation worth K10 million (US$25,000) by Islamic relief Organization as timely considering the fact that the country has been going through drug crises.
The minister said this on Tuesday at Kanengo Medical Stores i Lilongwe when she was receiving the donation meant for Machinga District Hospital and Zomba Central Hospital.
She said the donation will greatly improve the health services in the country as the country has increasing demand of medical supplies which government alone cannot manage.
â€śMost of the items that have been donated here will be utilized at Machinga District Hospital and Zomba Central Hospital both at Primary and Secondary level as referral hospitals, they deserve to have medical supplies in full stock as they receive difficult cases,â€ť she said.
On his part, Head of Programmes for Islamic Relief Malawi, Sharif Mia said the donation came about after recognizing the shortfall of medicines in Malawians hospitals.
She said that Machinga and Zomba have been chosen because there are programmes that are running under the Islamic Relief.
