Parliament satisfied with Lighthouse Trust’s provision of free HIV services
Parliamentary committee on HIV AIDS and Nutrition has applauded Lighthouse Trust for the commendable job in provision of free HIV services to people in the country and the Diaspora.
Speaking after touring Umodzi Family Centre at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital in Blantyre, Outgoing chairperson of Parliamentary committee on HIV AIDS and Nutrition Darlington Harawa says is overwhelmed with what lighthouse Trust is doing in promoting health care through HIV management.
Harawa said the system that Umodzi Family centre is using has proven to be the best as it allows even those that have gone out of the country to continue getting their ARV’s.
In her remarks, Chairperson for sub-committee of Lighthouse Trustees Dr. Dorothy Namate says the ‘back to care’ service has helped in increasing the number of people accessing services at Umodzi Family Centre which has over 16 thousand clients.
She however bemoaned the tendency of some people who default ART medication without any reasons saying it hinders the promotion of health hence derails both family and National development.
