Minister of Health, Dr. Chitalu Chilufya says government is saddened over the death of Professor Allan Haworth who died in Leeds yesterday.

Professor Allan Haworth was a pioneering psychiatrist who worked at Chainama Hills Hospital for many years. He was responsible for establishing the training programme in psychiatry at the University of Zambia School of Medicine. He is known as the Father of Mental health among the medical fraternity in Zambia.

Dr. Chilufya said the death of Prof. Haworth has robbed Zambia’s medical fraternity of a giant medical doctor, an originating researcher, a philanthropist and a teacher.

The Minister stated that Prof. Haworth who passed on yesterday at the hospital in Leeds was a world renowned Psychiatrist and an internationally acclaimed teacher of Medicine who has died at the age of 89.

“Therefore, on behalf of government and on my own behalf, I wish to express my deepest condolences to the Haworth and Muzizi families. Our prayers and thoughts are with you as you traverse this difficult time. We wish you Gods strength and guidance, “Dr. Chilufya said.

The Minister further disclosed that government will be at hands to support the funeral proceedings.
