First Lady Christine Kaseba says the increasing cases of cancer diseases in the country call for the need for adequate room space in cancer wards.

Dr. Kaseba says there is need for free flow ventilation in the wards and avoid overcrowding.

Speaking when she handed-over a Lamina Flow Cabinet donated by Access Bank Zambia Limited to the University Teaching Hospital Pediatric Cancer department in Lusaka today, Ms. Kaseba commended government for its commitment in ensuring that the medical services of cancer patients especially those that cannot afford treatment are improved.

She notes that Cancer disease services are very expensive hence the need to commend corporate organizations such as Access Bank for supplementing government’s efforts in ensuring that the health standards of the people are improved.

Dr Kaseba has since challenged the private sector to supplement government efforts in alleviating healthcare challenges.

And Access Bank Board Chairperson Caleb Mulenga says the Bank is optimistic that the equipment will make a positive impact on the lives of the patients, the children’s parents and members of staff.

Mr. Mulenga has further expressed optimism that the move the Bank has taken is a sustainable initiative that will ensure benefits for communities in which they serve.

He says the Bank will remain committed to working with government so as to better the lives of the people especially Children.

And UTH Managing Director Dr Lackson Kasonka has thanked Access Bank for the donation stressing that the equipment will make a difference in the way Health personnel look after the patients afflicted with the Cancer disease.

    • Ya, smiles all over as though everything is fine! The public is more worried than the wifeyyy, kind of funny.

  1. We were doing fine till we adopted the Western diet and strange carcinogen medicines from the west.Our natural medicines from roots and barks of trees were looked down upon…Now we are realizing that not everything from white man is good.The chinese and Japanese and Native americans know this but africans with their inferiority complex will accept whatever the West says to them.Shame on us!

  2. This girls smile is irritating please send to some place we’re they can teach her were and how to smile please.

  3. GET WORRIED SURE MY SISTER BECOZ THE OTHER PATIENT HAS FAILED TO RECOVER DYING SLOWLY WHILE U ARE WATCHING SMILING

  4. I believe these cancer cases are a result of family planing drugs.why is it that we never had such cases in time when our parents could bear 12children?and male circumcision was only done by luvales in zed,meaning the majority zedians had a foreskin including sata.moreover prostitutes don’t suffer from cancer but majority married women do,the reason is becoz married women use family planing drugs. Should it take a white man to tell you this?

  5. And uncivilized tongas and zezulus could marry more than 10 wives and never spread the human papiloma virus.doctors tell me the truth.

    • Am not Tonga or Zulu but calling people “uncivilized” actually shows you as uncivilized. How do you think the Tongas and Zulus will feel when they read your comment? Many biblical characters such as King David, Solomon, Jacob had more than one one wife. God had allowed it at one point. Here in America there some polygamous families especially in Utah. It has more to do with culture or religion than civilization.

  6. We adopted the toxic western lifestyle and dietary habits thereby inviting cancer and other diseases.How come the Maasai eat lots of meat yet they don’t get heart disease like westerners who are obsessed with “healthy eating” ???

    • You got it right Brother/Sister.. Its the western diet and lifestyle thats the cause of ALL our diseases today in Zambia, we left our ways..

  7. Her smile is really something beautiful to behold, but how she ended up marrying an unsmiling hateful, malicious, uncouth, a bully and vindictive character is another thing difficult to reconcile.

  8. hey people, can someone give me details of that beautifull lady standing next to the first lady in the second picture.

  9. Every sickness is a consequence of sin, directly or indirectly. When God’s commandments are abrogated (health or moral law) sickness comes in. Some diseases are found in families because of the sins of their ancestors, some we contract them because of our unruly behaviour.

  10. Madam Dr.Kaseba, you are right to say cancer cases have increased but what you did not mention was why.As much as many can speculate about our diet ,one thing for sure is that HIV/AIDS is that cause of this rise.
    If you need evidence ask the oncology dept.to give us the statistics of cases undergoing treatment and their HIV status.Dr.Lishimpi we are waiting!
