At least 10 people with goitre have been operated on from goitre in the northern region districts of Karonga and Chitipa.

While 17 others have been treated from fractures, tumours and other emergency surgical cases by a Germany-based health institution known as Interplast in a period of 14 days.

The 27 Malawians, most of whom are from poor backgrounds are now able to breathe a sigh of relief after going through a successful, free treatment of their problems.

According to a goitre specialist at Interplast, Dr Wagner Wagner, the 14 days of free service delivery in Chitipa district have been very fruitful as many people with the problem showed up for treatment.

The doctor expressed optimism that when they come back again for the services in October this year, many more people will show up.

Wagner went on to denounce the misconception that services are only meant for the rich emphasising that the services are offered to both the rich and poor free of charge.

Speaking to Capital FM, Wagner said he realises the fact that Malawi, being one of the developing nations in southern Africa, the country has little or no expertise in the field of goitre operations.

This he adds makes it very challenging for the common Malawians in these two districts of Karonga and Chitipa to travel to Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital in Blantyre for treatment.

“We know that there are few surgeons in this field in Malawi and this is a very costly to many poor Malawians to travel long way to Blantyre with their guardians for the treatment so it is very easy to give them treatment right in their districts at the district hospital,” explained Wagner.  

According to the health desk officer at Karonga diocese of the Catholic Church, Vincent Shaba, the leadership of the diocese decided to invite the foreign doctors complement the work of the few doctors that are in Malawian hospitals.

“Looking at the shortage of expertise who can provide services to people with goitre and bone fractures and other related problems in public hospitals, the Bishop of the Karonga diocese, Martin Anwel Mtumbuka decided to invite medical personnel from Interplast to help ease the problem,” Shaba said.

Goitre is a swelling of the neck resulting from enlargement of the thyroid gland.
