Govt continues procuring health kits

By SHARON ZULU

A team from the Zambia Medicines and Medical Supplies Agency  (ZAMMSA) and Ministry of Health is in India for the pre-shipment inspection and witnessing the packing of the first consignment of the health center kits.

The  new dawn administration through ZAMMSA has procured 42, 000 health centre kits from Mission Pharma which are expected to start arriving in the country next month.

Once received, the health centre kits will strengthen the public primary health care system and ensure that the country has an uninterrupted supply chain.

President Hakainde Hichilema has emphasized the need to address corruption, pilfering, and any deliberate distortions in the medical supply chain, warning that anyone found responsible should face legal consequences.

The Head of State also directed Provincial Health Officers to address any flaws in the distribution of medicines, noting that the diversion of drugs meant for public health facilities to private hospitals and clinics is unacceptable.
