MLW Reiteriates Supporting Malawi Govt
The Malawi Liverpool Wellcome Program has reiterated that it will continue supporting the Malawi government in key priority areas of health and climate change.
The programs director Professor Henry Mwandumba told journalists on Friday in Blantyre when awarding staff members in different categories aimed at encouraging them to continue working hard for excellence.
“Our intention is to continue working with the government of Malawi to ensure that we do research in those areas that are a priority to the government.
“We think going forward in areas such as climate change and mental health will be important to the work that we do in addition to areas we have been covering like infectious diseases,” Professor Mwandumba said.
According to Mwandumba more than 20 staff members have been awarded for serving the program for 25 years with clinical research skills.
An awardee in Exceptional Growth category Tiferanji Fatch Sochera expressed gratitude for the recognition by the program.
“I’m very happy because I did not expect to receive this award. It was a surprise to me and I thank the Malawi Wellcome Program (MLW) for that award,” she said.
Sochera has, however, encouraged fellow staff members to strive for excellent service delivery to Malawians.
Meanwhile the Malawi Liverpool Wellcome Program has been celebrating 25 years in existence for providing clinical research and health care services to the country since 5th to 17th September 2022.
