The Ministry of Health says it will not ration Anti Retro-viral drugs -ARV- because the country has enough stocks.

Minister of Health Dr. Chitalu Chilufya disclosed this in an interview with ZNBC News in Lusaka.

Dr. Chilufya has since called on organizations dealing with HIV issues to openly dialogue with the ministry on their concerns instead of rushing to the media.

And Dr. Chilufya says the ministry has a strict policy of not procuring drugs with a short shelf life.

He says all drugs that are being bought for hospitals have a long shelf life with clear expiry dates.

  1. What they say and what they do are two different things. No one can trust the pf government after stealing people’s votes on broad day light. Bane just vote nez as best blogger. I promise to blog on behalf of all Zambians and spear head your concerns to the top. I will speak for the common man.


  2. Can you even ration medicine on patients in the first place? Whenever I fall ill, professionals in the medical field always advise I take the full course, because any less would cause my body to develop immunity to that particular medicine.
    So, either ba LT have left out something scientific from what Dr Chitalu Chilufya said, or the word ‘ration’ is being used loosely.
