The Health Professionals Council of Zambia (HPCZ) says it is concerned that some universities offering health related programmes in the country have continued enrolling students despite having underqualified lecturers.

HPCZ Chief Executive Officer Aaron Mujajati says it is a sad state of affairs that some universities providing health related courses in the country have unqualified lecturers.

Dr. Mujajati has for this reason asked the affected institutions to revisit this position.

ZANIS reports that the HPCZ Chief Executive Officer said this today in Ndola during a stakeholders’ sensitization meeting for Copperbelt based training institutions.

“ It is shocking to find even students without a full grade 12 school certificate being enrolled to pursue various health programs at either Diploma or degree level which is not supposed to be the case while lecturers with diplomas are allowed to teach degree level students, “ he said.

If such dealings if left unchecked, will affect the caliber of health personnel offloaded to health institutions and compromising delivery of quality health care, he added.

Mr. Mujajati further warned that the council will have no choice if the situation does not improve by next year but to step in and restore order.

  2. This is a lame statement. If you know the affected institutions, why waste time? suspend them till they have qualified lecturers, period. You are wasting time by “being concerned”.

  3. Why wait for next year?Waiting for cancer to reach an advanced stage before seeking help? That is very ridiculous and is a big problem we have as Zambians. Its a known fact that a problem is better dealt with when it starts than wait for it to get bigger.

  5. The problem is due to the ineptitude of the Higher Education Authority which has been registering these fake universities.

  6. HPCZ should start by putting its own office in order. They keep losing files and are not efficient in their operations. Mujajati should audit his home team first before even going out to claim that schools are employing unqualified staff.

  7. Scientific and technological innovation, invention, discovery and break through belong the private university. This matter concerns HIV and it concerns renewable energy. It is not a matter of confrontation, It is a matter of engagement to resolve a deficit. Take time to modernize the country.
