Health Sylvia Masebo calls for strengthened collaboration in tackling health challenges in SADC

Minister of Health, Sylvia Masebo has called for consented efforts in the Southern Africa Region in addressing common health challenges in order to achieve the African Union (AU) agenda 2063.

She said Ministers in the Southern Africa Regional Collaborating center must remain committed to supporting the African Union agenda 2063, that is ‘’the Africa We Want’’.

Ms Masebo was speaking today during the closing ceremony of the two days Inaugural Regional Ministerial Consultative meeting for Southern Africa which was attended by ten countries in the Southern Africa Region at Bonanza Estate in Chongwe.

She indicated that countries in the Southern Africa region must all resolve to translate the recommendations from the meeting into policies, programmes and actions that will deliver lasting results in addressing the common health challenges.

‘’We have a lot of work ahead of us implementing the changes we have made and ensure they work for the betterment of the African Union,’’ said Ms Masebo.

‘’We have all listened, made strategic and meaningful contributions and key recommendations that will support the AU Africa Center Disease Control on behalf of member states to fully operationalize the Southern Africa Regional Collaborating Center(RCC),’’ she explained.

Ms Masebo also added that the government of Zambia will remain committed to honoring the host agreement mandate for Southern Africa RCC and the current path that the region is on.

‘’With support of our disease intelligence agency, the Zambia National Public Health Institute, we shall continue collaborating with all the AU Member States in the Southern Africa region as well as our health partners in building a strong resilient and strengthened region,’’ she assured.

‘’Our aim is to safeguard the individual country and regional public health security including strengthened emergency preparedness and response through data information sharing,’’ added Ms Masebo.


  1. Blah blah blah blah no power in Lusaka 3 days straight Friday Saturday Sunday….Real Black Friday…..HH said he had a solution kansi it was beans

  2. Madam, you have a big job, health delivery in this country broke down a long time ago, there is a lot of I don’t care attitude in most health centers, hospitals and clinics by our medical staff . If you go early in the morning you will only be seen in the afternoon, the rudeness from the nurses is as bad as it can be, You have a big job, you will need to put up effective monitoring systems like patients punching in when they entered the hospital and clocking out after they were seen , district monitoring units where customers can channel they grievances through toll free lines, nurses and medical staff wearing very visible names tags and a strong quality control and monitoring unit preferably outside the Ministry of Health structure

  3. HH is like a a Tutor at these mushrooming Universty….teaching what you cannot implement…. He lectured us on how to cut the cost of importing fuel. But the opposite is about to happen
