The Ministry of Health in Eastern Province has procured 800 HIV testing kits.
Provincial Medical Officer, Abel Kabalo confirmed this to Breeze News.
Dr. Kabalo says the Province procured the testing kits using their own resources last week, following the shortage of the kits that hit the country last month.
Dr. Kabalo says Medical Stores in Lusaka has also procured 10,000 HIV testing kits to be distributed to all provinces.
And the Provincial Medical Officer has appealed to organisations to assist the Ministry of Health in commemorating the World Health Week, which is being held this week.
Dr. Kabalo says donations of any kind are welcome to help the province conduct free medical services during the World Health Week.
This year’s World Health Week is being commemorated under the theme “Stop Diabetes”.
