Local and international health experts expect improved health research services in Malawi once construction of a £7 million (K6.7 billion) of State of Art Research Centre in Blantyre is completed.

Malawi Liverpool Welcome Trust Program Director, Professor Stephen Gordon, said construction of a new Clinical Research Excellence and Training Open Resource (CREATOR) building will be completed in 2021.

Gordon has described the initiative as game changer for medicine and science in Malawi, adding that it will attain a 30 percent increase in clinical research activity and post graduate specialist clinical education.

“We have been planning the CREATOR project for three years as a partnership with QUECH, CoM and external partners in the UK. The launch is very exciting as we see senior leadership from Liverpool and Malawi committing to making this project a reality,” said Gordon.

A Memorandum of understanding to construct the Centre was signed on Friday March 8, 2019 at the Malawi Liverpool Welcome Trust in Blantyre.

University of Liverpool Vice Chancellor, Professor Dame Janet Beer, said the CREATOR project reflects the rapid growth and quality of Malawian medical science.

“CREATOR will be a fantastic facility for training the next generation of doctors, other health care professionals and scientists. This reflects the rapid growth and quality of Malawian medical science and LSTM is delighted to be a partner in a project that will help deliver even greater success,” he said.

College of Medicine Principal, Dr. Mwapatsa Mipando and Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital Chief Administer, Themba Mhango, noted that once constructed, the Centre will offer an excellent environment where students and staff will be nurtured for improved   health care delivery in Malawi.
