In my previous post titled ” mental health care” ,I explained of the conditions mental health – cares are experiencing, However I did not explain in details how these conditions seem to exist.
Malawi has the lowest ranking on health system among countries which are not affected by civil wars, however the medical services delivered still rank lower than some war torn countries. worsened health sectors has been a hobby for Malawi due to these civil wars that are indirectly being experienced through neighboring countries.this in the end leaves the financial sector ground-hugging.
Somali crisis was one of the worst civil war that imposed a groovy impact on Malawi economic sector. I have actually eyewitnesses some these Somalians Pop in our neighborhood.And people who found them believed that they lived in the graveyards around our neighborliness. Later that day the police took this group of people in the places where they can live ” safely ”
From the time I was growing I have been told stories of how these people were treated in the so called “safely” places by our state. The state was to provide ,water,electricity, food ,cloths, shelter and at the same time medical support teams to these people.
That’s when I basically understood that we were and we are still affected by these civil wars indirectly.however one can impose a question that “how is this related to health?”.
The answer to the question is that,the Malawian financial sector which looks at the development of Heath sector ,is force to bog down some of the developments (in health sector) on the common grounds that it is helping these countries.which in the end finds itself struggling with poor health conditions.
Although there some other factors such as ,poor leadership , misallocation of resources ,failure to implement new healthy sector and lack of infrastructures that can help source more funds to the nation.
Lack of proper investments has caused a lot more problems in the health sectors.for instance in April 2012 the State President suffered a cardiac arrest which resulted to his death due to lack of medication both within the presidential medical team and at the main referral hospital where he was attended to.
Who is responsible for our healthy?.
