Population growth affecting health services in Mzimba

Fresh findings by this publication indicate that increase in population is affecting health service delivery in Malawi’s northern region district of Mzimba.
During a recent visit to Mzimba, our Reporter found that people were overcrowding in public health facilities such that medical personnel were unable to deliver efficiently.
For instance in the maternity wing, women were seen sleeping on the floor because their number exceeded the available beds in the room. Some of them went on to reveal to our reporter that almost 45 pregnant women were not able to sleep under mosquito nets because the available ones had already gone to others.
