RELATIONSHIP TO THE MINISTRY OF HEALTH & CHAZ

             The Government of Zambia through its Ministry of Health has undertaken responsibility for providing health care to all Zambians.  It has taken into partnership all mission hospitals in Zambia, so that they can provide care to the patients, in return for operating support by way of grants in aid, support of Zambian workers, provide drugs and medical supplies.

            As a member of the Churches Health Association of Zambia (CHAZ), Mwami cooperates with other church operated hospitals and clinics throughout Zambia to ensure that this partnership continues to be a viable and healthy relationship.

            Some staff members at Mwami are, therefore, supported indirectly by salary grants paid through CHAZ.  Others are directly employed by the Government of Zambia, Ministry of Health, as they are posted to Mwami.
