Harare. – (News of the South) – Government said the country will shortly benefit from cheap chemotherapy drugs sourced from reputable pharmaceutical companies.

Officially opening a clinical training course on radiography in Harare on Monday, Health and Child Care permanent secretary Gerald Gwinji said cheap medicine would come after Zimbabwe was invited to be part of the countries involved in the development and adaptation of National Comprehensive Cancer Network — African Guidelines
“Recently Zimbabwe was invited to be part of six African nations that
are involved in the development and adaptation of National Comprehensive Cancer Network — African Guidelines.

“This will result in our country benefiting from the reduced price of
chemotherapy drugs sourced from reputable pharmaceutical companies. We
acknowledge the Clinton Health Access initiative for their invaluable
contribution towards this endeavour,” Gwinji said.

He said government had invested a lot of money into the acquisition of radiography equipment, and it was overwhelming to note that health
professionals in the field were attempting to enhance the use of this
equipment for the benefit of patients.

“Taking cognisance of the fact that radiography is not used as the sole modality of cancer treatment, we also have committed funds from the Aids Levy to help in the procurement of a wide range of drugs as well,” Gwinji said.

“The country has been making steady improvements on manpower development in radiography through training programmes.”

Cervical cancer is the leading cancer among Zimbabweans, followed by prostate cancer, breast cancer and Kaposi’s sarcoma (skin cancer).
