Kaluwa said the development has come due to delays in shipment of expected supplies in the country which are following the problems of limited supplies internationally.

Meanwhile executive director for Malawi health equity network (MEHEN) George Jobe has blamed government for failing to set its priorities right by underfunding the health sector.

Jobe argued that the issue will put lives of Malawians at risk and also greatly affect the country’s efforts in fighting HIV/AIDS pandemic.
