Patients going abroad for treatment must stop

MINISTER of Health Chitalu Chilufya is concerned about an increase in the number of patients being sent abroad for medical attention due to failure by health practitioners to respond to their needs.
Dr Chitalu said the country has the capacity to attend to all sorts of health conditions.
He said this yesterday during the launch of the ministry’s national planning meeting for the 2019 and 2021 medium expenditure framework budget.
“We are embarrassed that after 50 years of independence, we are still referring patients abroad to go and seek medical attention. This must come to an end.
“It is important that we start aligning training to the needs of patients and that of the general public. We need to create a self-motivated cadre of specialists who can attend to our clients within the country
