The Health Professions Council of Zambia has commended Health Practitioners at the University Teaching Hospitals and Chipata Central Hospital for the recent successful operation on Richard Zulu, the 3 year 7 months old boy from Eastern Province, in whose body more than 40 needles were discovered.

HPCZ Head of the Public Relations Unit Terry Musonda said the service by Health Practitioners both from Chipata and Lusaka is commendable as it not only shows the individual Practitioner’s capabilities, but displays commitment to improving delivery of quality healthcare within Zambia.

Mr. Musonda says the HPCZ recognises that this is not the first time Local Specialists are exhibiting skill, the separation of conjoined twins Bupe and Mapalo at the University Teaching Hospital sometime in the year 2018 is another landmark operation that will never be ignored on the list of successful work of the Health Professionals.

Mr. Musonda has since urged all Health Practitioners in the Country to take the several success stories recorded as a drive to sustained delivery of skilled healthcare.

He said HPCZ will continue to follow developments in the Health Sector, including efforts by Professionals to deliver quality healthcare to the general Public.

Mr. Musonda said promoting compliance in healthcare and training standards remains HPCZ’s prime concern.

  2. They are indeed doing a wonderful job – Congrats! In fact, even our politicians who frequently seek medical treatment abroad are attended to most of the time by the Zambian doctors or other foreign nationals they despise in Zambia. God bless Zambia!

  3. These guys have skills, period! The sky would be the limit if all the funds spent on medical evacuations would be pumped into our own health system. God, Nostradamus, Zambians, whoever, please let this government see the potential in its own resources!
