National Health Week

Zambia’s annual National Health Week showcases the health interventions and services prioritized by Ministry of Health (MOH) and partners. ‘Promoting wellness for All’ was this year’s theme. The President of Zambia, Mr. Edgar Changwa Lungu, flagged off the event, flanked by the Minister of Health, Dr. Chitalu Chilufya, the Lusaka Provincial Minister, Mr. Bowman Lusambo, and the Lusaka Mayor, Mr. Miles Sampa. President Lungu visited the National Malaria Elimination Centre (NMEC) tent where he was tested for malaria by a community health worker from Chipata clinic, posed for pictures in the Malaria Ends With Me photo frame, and booted the ‘kick out malaria’ football. NMEC Director Dr. Mutinta Mudenda personally showed the President and his entourage the exhibited malaria interventions.
