HPCZ says the programme do not comply with sections 32 (1) and (2) of the health professions act no. 24 of 2009 of the laws of Zambia and are therefore not recognised and approved by the health professions council of Zambia.
Parents, sponsors and would-be-students are therefore alerted that any person (s) wishing to undertake the stated health related training programmes at the stated colleges and universities will not be eligible for registration with the health professions council of Zambia to practice as health practitioners in Zambia.
The health professions council of Zambia also wishes to stress that the advertisements on enrolment of students for the stated health related training programmes are not only illegal but has no approval from the health professions council of Zambia.
Further, parents, sponsors and would-be-students are also encouraged to double-check on the status of both the training institutions and health related programmes being advertised and offered with registrar of the health professions council of Zambia, whenever they come across such enrolment advertisements.
This is vital in order to avoid the inconvenience of losing their hard-earned-resources and time. The general public should further note that the professions council of Zambia is taking measures over the matter.
Health professions council of Zambia remains committed to its mandate and shared mission statement of: regulating and monitoring the professional conduct of the health practitioners, health facilities and training institutions in order to ensure compliance to the set standards and assure provision of quality services.
