CHAM Migrating Payroll into HIMS in February

The Christian Health Association of Malawi (CHAM) says the long-awaited payroll migration into the government’s Human Resources Management Information System (HRMIS) will commence in February this year.

CHAM’s Executive Director, Happy Makala, told Zodiak Online on Wednesday that the ministry of health has already made some recommendations to the directorate of human resources and management for the payroll migration to be affected.

Makala said the process which commenced some two years ago, delayed due to among other things human resource audit conducted in all the CHAM units across the country.

"The human resources audit found that health facilities over-recruited staff and this delayed migration of the payroll," said Makala.

Meanwhile, Malawi Health Equity Network (MHEN) Executive Director, George Jobe, has described the move as timely.

Jobe is optimistic that the move will motivate health workers in CHAM facilities as they will be receiving similar salaries and enjoy all benefits like those working in the public health facilities.

"This a good development and it is long overdue, the move will address delayed salaries in CHAM facilities and once effected workers will be receiving salaries on the same dates with health care workers in the public system," said Jobe.

For years, employees under Christian Health Association of Malawi (CHAM) have been complaining about salary and benefits harmonization to be in tandem with those working in public health facilities.

According to CHAM, at least 10,000 employees are expected to be migrated into government’s Human Resources Management Information System (HRMIS).
