US to pay Malawian health workers for 3 years

93

The United States Government will provide salary support for the next three years for up to 462 Malawian healthcare workers.

According to the US Embassy in Malawi, the beneficiaries of the development will be Malawian healthcare workers deployed in high HIV burden facilities of Lilongwe, Zomba, and Blantyre districts.

These healthcare workers include Nurse Midwife Technicians, Medical Assistants, Pharmacy Assistants, Lab Technicians, and Clinical Technicians who will provide critical HIV/AIDS and other life-saving services to hundreds of thousands of Malawians.

It is reported that to date, 325 of these healthcare workers have been recruited and deployed with the remainder expected to be deployed by December 31, 2017.

The initiative has been made possible by the US President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), the US Agency for International Development (USAID) and the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

  1. That money is very dirty and disgusting, i mean why the Malawian government even allows that? In the Us there are a lot of un employed people who needs and deserves support with that very same money why giving to the Malawians I mean what is the US government is going to get out of that ? The US government and it’s people are very dangerous to the world and Malawians don’t deserve to be forced to eat that dirty money. Is the Malawi government trying to hand the country over to the Us so that it must run our country or what ? Yes! our country is poor, we are poor and the US government need to let us die in peace ? weee don’t need their money !!!!!!

  8. Malawi is a useless country!!! Failing to pay 462 people!!!……its no longer a country but a village,why dont you dissolve that country and provinces be absorbed by neighbouring countries then Malawi cease to Exist!!!!

    • So you think south africa is usefull country. Oh! wait is there any difference between SA and Malawi. Or maybe you think the world dont know that Mandela sold south africa to white people.

    • At least South Africa can provide for its citizens,you never heard South Africa begging European countries for bailouts or loans,you never heard South Africa failing to pay its employees or failing to give every employee bonuses at the end of the year,yes South Africa is way ahead of ur useless village,seriously you have to beg anada country to pay ur workers n u call yourself a country?!! Really?

    • You know why you dont beg from european countries to pay your bills? Its simple, its just because you have the european countries right inside south Africa athing that Malawi rejected in 1964

    • Dominique, you clearly have no idea what you are talking about, and its bordering on racist. There is no country in Africa, not ONE, that doesn’t receive aid from one country or another. Whilst I do not agree in principle with handouts in general, you have taken that sentiment and turned it into a slur. Be very careful with words like that. Just FYI, I have reported this post, trolls like you have no place on facebook!

    • This guy called Domingo or dominiki or whatever is too dumb and arrogant.it might happen that maybe he got a primary school certificate but sure its that it wasn’t enough to clear out his stupidness and ignorance.
      If south Africa is a great country then is it that over the months their ratings has been downgraded to a junk status???!!!!!!!!!

      Don’t lie to people here,southafrica is not performing well econocally.
      They government of SA is in big billions of debts from overseas and they are failing to pay back,that’s the reason they been downgraded to junk status.
      So do

      S&P downgrades SA’s local currency debt to ‘junk’ status

      While Moody’s issues a warning.

      Arabile Gumede, Bloomberg / 25 November 2017 01:05 8 comments

      S&P Global Ratings downgraded South African local currency debt to “junk” territory on Friday, citing a further deterioration in the country’s economic outlook and public finances, sending the rand tumbling.

      But Moody’s decision to only place South Africa on review for a downgrade may have prevented a larger sell-off in the currency. Moody’s rates the country’s foreign and local currency debt on their lowest investment grade rung of Baa3.

      The downgrade by S&P comes after Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba shocked markets on Oct. 25 by flagging sharply weaker growth expectations, a wider budget deficit and rising government debt.

      Infighting within the ruling African National Congress ahead of a conference in December to elect a successor to President Jacob Zuma as party chief has also sapped investor confidence in Africa’s most industrialised economy where growth has slowed to a near standstill in recent years.

      “Weak GDP growth has led to further deterioration of South Africa’s public finances beyond our previous expectations,” S&P said in a statement.

      “We expect that offsetting fiscal measures will be proposed in the forthcoming 2018 budget in February next year, but these may be insufficient to stabilize public finances in the near term, contrary to our previous expectations.”

      S&P lowered the long-term local currency sovereign credit rating to ‘BB+’ from ‘BBB-‘, and also cut the long-term foreign currency rating deeper into sub-investment grade territory, lowering it to ‘BB’ from ‘BB+’.

      S&P raised the outlook on both the foreign currency and local currency ratings to stable from negative.

      The mounting financial burden South Africa is facing cannot be dismissed as unworthy of serious consideration, nor reduced to a simple solution, such as printing more money.

      South Africa is facing a few financial hurdles, not least the mounting foreign debt and the financial demands placed on government by state-owned entities (SOEs). The painfully slow release of March financial results for SOEs is keeping us in suspense. However, the financial status of those that have been released show a horrifying picture of complete reliance on government guarantees and bailouts in order to stay in business. If these are not brought under control, South Africa could be dragged to the edge of a financial cliff.

      An overriding concern is the government’s US dollar-denominated gross external debt, which at June was $58.8 billion. Public corporation foreign debt, totalling $20.4 billion, should be included as it is guaranteed by government. At an exchange rate of R13.39 (at time of writing), this amounts to R1.1 trillion. Total external debt is $152.8 billion (R2 trillion). Foreign direct investment of $1.9 billion pales in comparison.

      Nation deep in the mire Budget deficit of R50.8-billion next year, R89.4-billion by 2020

      APPLYING HIS MIND President Jacob Zuma dozes as Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba admits in parliament on Wednesday that the economy is in deep trouble Picture: Ranjeni Munusamy

      Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba has revealed that the gross national debt will shoot up to R3.4-trillion, or 60% of GDP, by 2020 as the government is forced to borrow more to fund policy implementation.

      Presenting his medium-term Budget policy statement in parliament on Wednesday, Gigaba painted a grim picture of the state of the country’s public purse, stating that the government was facing a budget deficit of R50.8-billion next year, which was projected to rise to R89.4-billion by 2020.

      Gigaba said the government was faced with difficult choices in the next three years because the economy was expected to grow by only 1.2% next year before peaking at a modest 1.9% in 2020, allowing little growth in the tax revenue base.

      Tax revenue was projected to be R1.4-trillion next year, rising to R1.7-trillion by 2020, but government expenditure was expected to rise to R1.9-trillion in 2020, leaving a budget deficit of just over R225-billion.

      This means the government will, in the next three years, be forced to borrow more money to fund its spending plans, which would push the gross national debt to 60% of GDP, or R3.4-trillion by 2021.

      Debt-service costs are expected to rise from R183-billion in 2018 to R223-billion by 2021, making government loan repayments the fastest-growing expenditure item, at 11% of the Budget.

      This means that the government would in the next three years be spending more money on paying

  14. That is bad news for the government. Are they failing to pay them? We can’t rely on handouts all the time from our Colonial Masters. Shame!! Peter wa Muthalika
