LOW NUMBER OF COMMUNITY HEALTH WORKERS WORRIES CHAZ

CHAZ

 

By Christopher Chisi

 

The Churches Health Association of Zambia (CHAZ) has observed that the long distances people are subjected to when accessing medical facilities, as well as the low number of community health based workers in health facilities, are among factors affecting the fight against malaria in the country.

 

CHAZ  Head of Pharmaceutical and Logistical Services Marlon Banda is concerned that a lot of communities are located in hard to reach areas thereby making it difficult for them to receive some necessary malaria interventions. 

 

Banda has however told 5fm news that the country has been making steady progress in the fight against malaria.
