Dr. Chansa said the Specialists were impressed with efforts that the Ministry and Kitwe Teaching Hospital were making in offering quality health care and services hence their decision to partner with the hospital.
He said the partnership will include selection of patients that would benefit from Interventions, and capacity building through clinical placement of Kitwe Teaching hospital medical doctors at Apollo hospitals.
“During their visit to the Ministry and our hospital, the delegation was impressed and feel that through this partnership, the people of Kitwe and surrounding areas would greatly benefit,” he said.
