Hospital user fees: adults to pay over K1000

485

Malawians, many of whom live on less than a dollar a day, will now have to pay more than K1,000 every time they access medical services at public hospitals.

Kamuzu Central Hospital

Malawians to pay in public hospitals.

According to reports reaching Malawi24, a child accessing medical services at government owned hospitals will be charged K750 while adults will have to fork out K1,650.

The user fees will be introduced from July this year, according to minister of health Peter Kumpalume.

Kumpalume said in an interview that the ministry has finished working on the policy and they are waiting for cabinet approval. ”We are waiting for cabinet approval and this is in line with the public reforms which were introduced.

“We want to make the health sector more efficient and hospitals should generate funds on their own through the fee that people will be paying when they want to access the medical services and will also want to improve the conditions in the government hospitals,” said Kumpalume.

  1. People u r claiming that villagers will die, go into villages and see how they are reproducing,are we in old testament? Everybody should take responsibility,its when villagers will use contraceptives properly,those in against freed your private clinics for those called poor but irresponsible people to access health care for free @ ur clinic

  2. It’s high time the Malawi government and collaborating partners focused on the upstream factors influencing ill health. If we continue to invest in curative interventions or health care, we should know that we’re changing but a little. Let’s focus on socioeconomic deprivation. Umphawi is the source of all these health problems.

  12. They banned manufacturing of tiny plastics, we accepted. They banned making sachet beer, we agreed with them. And now they want to ban life. Are we gonna bow down to this one as well? Just look at this guys, we are already struggling to get medicine when we visit public hospitals and our friends and relatives are dying day in/out due to this problem. Then the government is also coming in to say that we should pay the doctors for killing our brothers and sisters. Isn’t this what we call madness? For my money(in my opinion), this is tantamount to banning life in Malawi.

  27. mlibe zeru nanga anthu amasiye azigogo ndi anthu osauka ayitenga kuti ndrama mkufuna anthu amwalire tidzakuonani 2019 a Peter mdzachoka

  28. Oh my motherland do u think this can be better solution for gvt to earn money?wat about the greedy leader. and pipo will pay for that poor services nde zafikapo pano tisamanamizile kuti ziko ndi loosauka koma tilibe atsogoleli abwino. ngati boma limasowa ndalama nanga munthu waakumuzi 1000 its too much ganizanipo kachiwiri apa

  29. Ok sizikulakwika tizilipira but make sure we have mankhwala okwanira and ma doctors/nurses must treat patient with dignity bcoz we are payng 4the service we are not payng for panado koma full treamnt komanso ma ambulance anasowa tkuena wapasi tikadwala

  30. we have 4 departments in our wards of which each caters 20patients / day who have poor-mans illness related (either due to poor hygine or poor nutrition dute to having little money) so 20*4=80 admissions per day,,, 80*750=60000/day taken away from less pocketed malawians or 80*1650 = ??? if u do the math to see how much per wk can the hospital make out the patients attending it u’ll be shocked. then how do u think these will develop themselves?,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, its a nice move introducing the fees but at least k500 is better.

  31. Others were just saying its a good move it will improve service delivery even me literary ithink so but let us think about atypical rural grany who is failing to raise five kwacha for soda .ithink all we poor Malawians our tym have expired

  32. If aperson have no money to pay for they children at primary school their children will be illiterate,but what if they hav no money for hospital???

  33. Chifukwa chomwe ndimadana ndi politics mwazina ndi izi pamenepa wina akuti wapanga plan yotukula dziko tsek to hell with yo plans

  34. Paying in government hospital a better idea and in primary xulz as well bt the rates must be fair enough to pro poor malawians to aford…………. Eg xul of 10000 students at k500 per month will realise a sum of 5million kwacha in cash nanga choncho sallary ya aphunzitsi ingasowe? Dzuka malawi dzuka zaulele tikafikanazo kut? The government has tried to adjust tax rates bt could nt aveil co we are many 17 million plus boma silingakwanitse

  35. asogoleli akumalawi ndi anthu osakonda dziko lawo kodi akudziwa kuti kumidziku anthu amatha mwezi osapeza k1000 yomwe akunenayo ndiye munthu akudwala ayipeza bwanji mudzayankha mulandu wakupha kwa mulungu komaso tiona ngati muwinaso 2019

  36. when a government officials recieve k35000 just for 5 hours its called benefits(allowance)..when the same money is given once to local malawian in FISP annually it is called waste of reasources,,,,when govt can spend 5 million to one govt official just for check up is called caring, free healthy care to ordinary malawiann is called waste of reasources…tell me what strategies are you following

  37. kodi ndi nthito iti yomwe tingaphese ndalama yolipila ku chipatala bwanji boma osaganisila anthu sinthito soti asigwila kuti akwanise kulipila mangwala m’sipatala ziko la malawi tili pa chiopweso cha njala ndi mathentha aku boma ganisani bwino yinuyo mukulandila mulibe vuto koma asibale anu Sa

  40. The problem is not paying… But who is paying…some of this guys don’t even have transport to hospitals so how and where to get this money… Please Malawians lets help the government and find out the cost of them not to pay …. We must dig deep in our pockets and settle some of this issue. And we have stayed long in this poverty thing, Malawi is a peaceful nation so why is it not prosperous. Where ever their is peace also their is prosperity. But not the same in Malawi. We must not wait for west to come we all the aid we must help each other…local generated NGO, will help some where. If 1 million Malawians gives K10 everyday ..we will have k10 00 000 per day take it to 30days then take it to 12months At lest it will help . Government can’t do every thing. We are also part of the government. When we talk bad of our government we will have bad government,lets prayer for them and , as long as we are in this situation… We also must work with international NGO
    for services assistance like drugs etc. God bless Malawi.

  42. This is a good move for development, a thing which has enriched many countries but for sure it cant work with Malawi coz of Corruption and overdependence. So it worries me kut mankhwala a donation tizigulisananso.

  46. Malawi wake up I think it will not wake think those in vg will afford to do that. Best thing is national ID although Malawi u have realize madzi atafikakhosi remember this new system it be beyond than cash gate coz doctors or nurses in high positions they will be richer with our money feers if so government must plan carefully abt this if it was 80s 0r 90s not now ur making people nautically.

  47. Nyasaland Malawi, in dis case are poor MALAWIAS STIL paying tax to GOVT or not? 2019 is not too far u shall need us. U shall need our vote but it will be too late itell u. Ok!

  48. But to be honest this government they don’t think abt poor people .Bolaso maulamuliro apitawo zinthu sizimkafika ponyasa ngat mmene zafikilamu komanso a Malawi tisamangovomeleze zilizose .Munthu amatha kudwala mwadzidzi ulibe or k5 which means anthu ovutika azingofa

  53. Are you a nurse my brother Fedderick Michael Muyaba? This is a stupidest thing I have ever heard in my life, what if you are really sick not about your headache as you have mentioned and you don’t have that amount? It’s definitely you won’t be attended……… These people are robbers, they sell government medical equipments to private hospitals and they are now given this opportunity to steal more from the poor, this idea sacks!

  54. tinazolowela ife,kulipila tinayamba Kale kupita ku chipatala cha boma amakuuza kt mankhwala kulibe ukagule ku phamarcy,ndye chachilendO mcha? vuto si boma la dpp koma ndi amai cOz zOnsezi zabwela just becoz othandiza asiya kupeleka thandizo ndye olo muli inu mudakatan?

  55. I would suggest the best option for the payment system should be creation of a health insurance and it should use swipe cards for every client seeking medical service so that money realized should not be touched by dis-honest health officials. Perhaps hiring a private firm could be much better than the overused government services where there is a long chain of signatories to approve some minute document and eventually delaying the whole process on top of stealing / plundering the public purse, shame!!!

  56. U mean k1000 or k100, chilungamu ndichoti “NO MORE gorvnment hospitals nanga kodi muthu woti wachita ngozi ayitenga kuti nde kenakano timva zoti tizilipilaso miseumu oyenda pasife aaaaaa chaulere kuchokera kuboma aaa zikutha

  67. In my humble contribution, I hope this is long overdue. For how long are we going to wait for the government to provide us with subsidies, freebies etc. We don’t have a vibrant economy, we have been dependent on donors, we keep on importing even trash but feel as if everything is fine. We look the other way zikakhala kuti zathu zikuyenda and we don’t think about the plight of other people. Honestly, izi ndi zomwe zikufunika.

    • Dats de only problem. Bt de reason y am supporting it is dat tax goes there indirectly and wen u r not provided wit good services its very difficult to question de officials for as the we do in private hospitals. Dis time u can even hav some powers to ask de reason y u r not given good services bt u r paying

  87. Basi! malo olima aja asanduka manda, maso athu atupa ndikulira maliro odza kaamba kosowa ndalama zokalipira kuchipatala. Where will poor people get money to buy maize, money to pay for medical expences, money to pay school fees, money for fertilizers, money for etc, etc. Only thieving DPP politicians will survive on the heavy tax money they milk from common people. nanga ndatukwana apa?

  88. Malawi, Malawi,, pena tiyeni tiziyang’ana kusogolo komwe tikupita,, anthufe tili ndi vuto chilichose timangoti boma lalakwisa,, maiko anzathu ali ndizinthu zoti zimawapang’ila ndalama pomwe ife kwathu kumakhala kudikilila kuti tithandizidwe,, kupanda kuthandizidwa Malawi amakhala pamavuto osati masewela,, 1000 imeneyi itha kupangisa dziko lathu kumakhala ndi mankhwala okwanila muzipatala,, zaulele kuzesa usilu.. yasala Primary school

  89. Akanati k1000 pa chaka per person aleast akanakwanitsa koma akuti each time you visiting medical facility mmmmm not good at all.

  90. #mike gvt services to its citzens ndi zaulere? Umbuli bwanji. Ukamati zaulere. Ukuganiza kuti ndalama akugulira mankhwalazo boma likuzitenga kuti mbuzi yamunthu iwe? Ndi anthu omwwewo amakhoma msonkho womwe boma amagulira mankhwalawo. Ndiye zakhala bwanji zaulere. Mzipita kusukulu osamasapota chimbulimbuli agalu inu

  91. The issue here is not one thousand kwacha? Those saying its a good move, do u really believe services will change coz pipo are paying a thousand? Do u think medicine will miraculously appear in hospitals because of that fee.. I dont think so. We have poor services and no.medicine in hospitals because of corruption, allocation of funds to hospitals and other health facilities is not enough. Kwa amane angakwanitse kupereka ka thousand its not a big deal MAY be koma kwamphawi wakumudzi ndikubetsa kumeneko chifukwa timaone thousand timeneto tipita kwa anthu achuma kale.. Tima 1000 tidyedwa mmene ndalama zansonkho zimadyedwera. If it was a different country MWINA ndikanati Bravo but not here..kubetsa ndalama yovuta kaleyi…

    • But if people from mosambique are the ones receiving our medication it means there is wrong with our system.I dont tbink a grand.will stop immigrants from acessing the services. Go to immigration. Foreignors get passports undet oir nose. That fee will even give an advantage to those from mozambique. We can not compare ouselves with mozambique bro. We were suppose to be,way better.they have had many wat civil wars but if u go yo.maputo.its way advanced. U can not go to maputo hospital and get medication just like that. Ifeyo we need to change the systems first before we start thinking of a fee remember money does not solve everything. But mindset.of people.amawononga.maresources are not people who are going to be strained to pay a grand. U and me mau be we can aford pvt hospitalz without.a problem and that fee mau be too small for u and.me.but it will not have a real impact. Mwina tinaphunzira one or two things from.Botswana we wouldnt be talking about a fee to control medicine or prople who go thre. So system change does not really involve fees but rather being strict as a country. National IDs, sending to jail real calprits not smiling at already rich pipo who have seen an opportunity to steal from the poor. In our country we know to convice pipo with good paper work but implementing. What has been put on paper thats a different case all together. We have good policies as a country koma do we implement them or a few elite shave all the good policies under the carpert. Am tired of reading and listening to good policies that end up creating more misery than solutions. Like i said its good idea but my problem is i dont tjink its practical in our country.

  92. and you should stop the following as well malata-cement subside and farm inputs subside. no free education every one has to pay. let alone donors provide things for free.

How can I explain this testimony to the public about a great man who help me out in serious illness I have HIV AID for good 3year and I was almost going to the end of my life due to the way my skin look like all I have in my mind is let me just give up because life is not interesting to me any longer but I just pray for God every day to accept my soul when ever I’m gone lucky to me my kids brother run to me that he found a doctor in the internet who can cure HIV online he help me out on everything, the doctor ask for my details, so he can prepare the herbal medicine for me from his temple after all he ask is done one week later I started getting more stronger my blood start flow normally for 4 to 5 days I start getting Wight before 6 days my body start developing my skin start coming up after 8 days which he told me that i will be completely healed, I went for HIV test and I was tested negative I’m so happy that I can say I’m not a HIV patient if you have HIV/AID or any sickness he can still help you in getting your ex-back to you please contact him via his email: dr.williamsherbaltempel@gmail.com, or whatsapp him on +2348143143878.

  100. Only the rich will survive. Eliminating the poor under the disguise of new policies. Medication itself is poor. Should we really indeed pay for the service of saying ‘ Go & buy medicine for yourself? or were the medicine hiden in readness for this? Lets wait for this survivor of the fittest.
