The Mobile Hospital Services –MHS in Kalabo district in Western province has attended and treated over 2 000 people at the out-patient department.

Mobile and Emergency Health Services Supervisor for Western Province Patson Mukubesa disclosed in an interview with ZANIS in Kalabo yesterday that about 2, 441 patients were attended to by the mobile service.

Dr. Mukubesa said that the patients accessed treatment during the eleven days period from 17th October, to 26th October, 2012.

Dr. Mukubesa said that the services the patients received from the Mobile Hospital facilities ranged from hernia repairs, pelvic surgeries, and removal of lymphoma, hysterectomies, surgical services and general medical services.

And a number of Kalabo residents who or whose relatives received treatment from the Mobile Hospital Services appreciated and commended government for the provision of health facility.

The residents said that this was an indication that government is committed to ensure that people were health.

The residents of Kalabo appealed to government to continue with such commitment and support by providing the district with the Mobile Hospital Services especially that Kalabo is always cut-off by road during the rainy season due to flooding.

  1. #1 we still condemn them but we cannot thraw them away. Once the hospital leaves what happens to the people of Kalabo? Too much money was spent and most of it went to kick backs to RB.

  2. #3. Don’t mention RB’s kick backs which you have no proof on. Even the very powerful powers that be have completely failed to come up with evidence. Even your chief from kumenshi ku luapula had just to be forgiven by RB because he is a statesman for uttering things without facts. Next we are seeing them failing to convince the court with the super DPP under the zambian soils that Dora stole. So please lets just dwell on why what we condemned has become recommendable now that the ball is in our hands. The list can be endless- the public order act, nepotism etc many things are now good which were preached to be bad. Anyway only God will judge us.

  3. @ kci, your comment makes you sound…. well…. bitter.

    Tell me, what is your proof of these so-called “kickbacks” (correctly spelled as one word, by the way, not two).

    And while you are at it, perhaps you can also explain what the PF considers to be “too much” money to spend delivering health services to poor people in hard to reach rural areas and why, if mobile hospitals are such a bad idea, have so many other countries gone for this option? I’m not sure what “thrawing” something out is, but it sounds like you must have costed this out and made a detailed comparison of the options for Zambia so await your evidence with baited breath. It is only bitter people who condemn without reason so am sure you have a good, fact-based explanation. Right?

  4. IAM SHOCKED THIS DR IS TELLING A LIE HOW DO YOU DO PELVIC REPAIR IN A MOBILE CLINIC SUCH A MAJOR OPERATION. ARE THESE MOBILE EQUIPED WITH THEATER EQUIPMENT. MU LE NASHAKO UBUFI PA ZED

    • Yes, I believe the mobile hospitals are equipped with theater equipment…. and skilled doctors who can use the equipment, which would be very difficult and expensive to provide at individual health centers. They are not a substitute for rural health centers, but designed to provide specialized care to people who would otherwise have zero access. 

  5. Shocked. Though not a medical doctor or from a health profession, the mobile hospital vehicles put together have all the equipment to even do operations.

  6. #6 SHOCKED, Yes the Mobile Hospital is equiped with a complete theater. It is also equiped with radiography equipment and a medical lab. It is a complete hospital where ever it goes.

  7. A mobile hospital can reach more people than a stationary one. It some times travels with a conslting physician and a surgeon and can therefore attend to complicated medical cases. As to what happens after the hospital leaves the area, the patient is then expected to continue with the treatment at the local clinic. The idea was very sound and the professionals have vindicated it, even in the absence of political support. The propaganda against the idea was from Post Newspaper, which had a vested interst in the elections (K18bn Nkongole) and they incited some visionless NGOs to parrot their editorials.

  8. VIVA MMD, YOU ARE STILL APPRECIATED BY DECENT HUMBLE PEOPLE WHO MATTER THE MOST IN AN Y GIVEN SOCIETY. YOUR POLCIES WERE GOOD AND AIMED AT UPLIFTING PEOPLES’ LIVES. I CAN NOW DRIVE AT 80KM/HOUR ON SOME ROADS IN TOWNSHIPS. I MISS WHAT WE COULD HAVE ACHIEVED TO DATE HAD MMD BEEN GIVEN ANOTHER TERM OF OFFICE. NOW WE LOOK TO ANOTHER 4 YEARS OF NO DEVELOPMENT. THANKS TO YOU WHO VOTED IN PF. NEXT TIME PLEASE FOCU ON AND SCRUTINIZE THE POSSIBLE IN COMING PARTY AND NOT CHANGE FOR THE SAKE OF CHANGING.

  9. ??:I loved as much as you’ll receive careird out right here. The sketch is tasteful, your authored material stylish. nonetheless, you command get bought an impatience over that you wish be delivering the following. unwell unquestionably come further formerly again since exactly the same nearly very often inside case you shield this hike.
