Mzimba registers over 600 STI cases in Q1

Testing for infections

Mzimba District Hospital has recorded over 600 cases of Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) from January to March 2022.

The report indicates more than half of those who tested positive are aged below 35 and are mostly infected by Syphilis.

Mzimba South STI coordinator, Dan Kwacha, said the data is for Mzimba District Health Office (DHO) as a facility excluding other health centers in the district.

“We are trying to train more people who can correctly diagnose and correctly treat the cases.

“We need to lobby with government especially on the aspect of drug stock outs as there has been a drug problem for STIs from January this year,” Kwacha said.   

Kwacha pointed out that information on the importance of condom use is needed seeing that the infections are as a result of unprotected sexual intercourse.

Director for Mzimba Youth Organization, Moses Nkhana, expressed worry that Ministries of Health and Youth lack seriousness in addressing the challenge.

“We have the Ministry of Youth, but I don’t know at what level they engage the youth with comprehensive sexuality education in structured clubs and schools,” Nkhana said.

“In trying to mitigate the situation, several interventions have been happening in making sure that young people don’t gather in risky places. The youth had places here in Mzimba, called Jungle love, Changalawo among other areas where risky activities were happening and we managed to stop them.  

“However, we do not provide them with alternatives so having a resource center for the youth is key for having comprehensive sexuality education in the district because is critical in addressing sexuality challenges,” Khana added.

Nkhana suggested lack of recreation centers in the district for knowledge on sexual reproductive health services fuels the cases.
