Health Profession Council of Zambia ( HPCZ) chief executive director Aaron Mujajati says the decentralization process has started bearing fruit with a number of significant successes so far recorded.
Dr Mujajati says through the decentralization process, HPCZ is in a process of opening an office in kasama, Chipata and other region in order to effectively handle concerns from health practitioners.
The HPCZ , he noted . has already opened an office in Ndola to deal with health registration and disciplinary related cases for health practitioners in the region.
ZANIS reports that this came to light when he paid courtesy call on Luwingu district commissioner Patrick Chanda, today.
Dr. Mujajati told the district commissioner that the council has since named Mr. Boniface Bwalya as an assistant registrar for northern region.
He explained that the Mr. Bwalya will be in charge of Luapula, Muchinga and Northern provinces adding that kasama district will be the headquarters.
And Luwingu District Commissioner Chanda said the government has constructed three (3) health posts from the 9 which were allocated to the district under construction of 650 health posts countrywide.
Mr. Chanda said all the facilities are manned by qualified personnel including those previously manned by cleaners such as Ndoki, Joko, shimumbi, Nsombo, Katuta and Chungu rural health centers.
One of the health posts was commissioned by the Vice President Inonge Wina two years ago.
