Most Zambian medical facilities owned by the Government are not
the very best good. I will not go into details, but just say a lot can be done to improve the situation.
However, one has to give credit where credit is due. My mother has always generally been a healthy woman who worked the land for the past several years. A few years ago she started feeling poorly and was diagnosed with a heart ailment, and know what? The heart unit at the University Teaching Hospital (UTH) in Zambia took her case on and put her on medication. She is well now, thank God. She has to do things at a much slower pace but can still work the land, something that she loves very much.
I wish I had a clear photo of UTH, but I don’t so I copied one from http://www.friendsofunza.org/3/miscellaneous5.htm
I know UTH staff who attend to my mother will not see this post, but I am still very grateful to them for keeping my mother alive and healthy these past few years. Not only do they give her proper medication, but mum says they are very cordial and helpful. To add icing on the cake, heart disease patients do not have to pay for treatment otherwise only a handful would afford. What more can one ask for?
