Service Centre Manager for Mulanje service centre Ms Tamara Mtuwa hands over the equipment to the District Health Officer Dr Khuliana Kabwere
“We are aware that many hospitals in our country are running on minimal medical supplies. The doctors and other health personnel work as hard as they can to supply the best care available, but often, it’s not enough. In considering this, it pleased the bank’s management to approve the request that we received from the hospital that we assist with medical equipment.
The shortage of functional medical equipment is a critical barrier to meeting the health-related Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Lack of quality medical equipment or poor state of medical equipment is a key challenge our hospitals face in delivering services.
