A TEAM of Indian doctors specialised in Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) is set to be in Zambia effective Wednesday evening, May 9, 2018 to carry out free health care services.

The specialised doctors from the Rotary Club of India had been invited by Chairperson of the Rotary ENT Programme for Zambia Ravi Devalia.

Speaking at the Zambian Chancery in New Delhi, India, before departure, Rotary International District 3054 Past Governor Ratnesh Kashyap said the doctors would be in Zambia for ten days.

“Those who will be found in need of surgeries will be admitted for surgery on Monday,” he said.

Mr. Kashyap said the seven doctors had also carried fifty high quality hearing aids that would be presented to those that would be nominated by the Rotary Club of Zambia.

And Zambia’s High Commissioner to India Judith Kapijimpanga said a number of people were anxiously waiting for the specialised doctors from India to attend to them.

“Zambia High Commission in India is happy to note that India and Zambia has continued to collaborate well in many sectors such as health,” Mrs. Kapijimpanga said.

She had since urged the team to find time to also sample what Zambia’s tourism industry could offer.

This was contained in a statement made available by First Secretary Press and Tourism at the Zambian Mission in New Delhi, India, Bangwe Naviley.


  1. Forex and lack of faith in our medics is what our leaders take out of Zambia everytime they go to South Africa for healthcare.

    • This is good. At least my aunt will be treated now. She has been on UTH waiting list for a long long long time.

  2. Surely why should we bring doctors from India on a temporal basis.why can’t we employe them on a full time basis so that they may also share the knowledge with our own medical personnel in our great nation Zambia.because once that is done,we will reduce the number on the waiting list,at the same time also avoid taking people abroad for medical treatment.
