Stakeholders question use of snake in emblem

THE snake symbol on the National Health Insurance Management Authority (NHIMA) logo sparked debate during a dialogue meeting with some delegates linking the emblem with evil.
Some delegates even called for the replacement of the image of a snake curled around a rod or staff.
National Union of Public Service Workers general secretary Grucewell Makondo wanted to know what compelled the authority to choose a snake to be part of the logo.
Mr Makondo proposed that NHIMA should localise the symbol by finding an emblem which symbolises medicine in one of Zambia’s languages instead of the snake.
He said this during a dialogue meeting between the NHIMA and public service unions on Friday.

    The devil is symbolized by a snake in many bible passages, so its not about how many countries are using it or how long institutions have used it. I say no to a snake symbol.

    Come on people. Are you saying Moses’ red serpent on a pole is a diabolical phenomena? Didn’t God Himself instruct Moses to make and raise the snake curled around a pole?

    Ba Zambia please stop suffering from interlectual laxity, research! The sore called medical health symbol is of ‘unholy Greek god’. Zambia believes in the God of Abraham. Just design an ‘cleaner’ indigenous symbol. How long can we’be copy cats.

    So the symbol is a copy cat like the way an opposition political party has been accused of copying it’s manifesto?

    That symbol is not a snake symbol in the National Health Insurance Management Authority (NHIMA) per see but a round worm found in human intestines and it is used in WHO symbol as well. please lets not be jumping to conclusions. Worm infections used to be common in the past and this should not be interpreted like medical professionals have gone kokayi.

      That doesn’t look like a worm. It is a snake just see the tongue protruding

    This symbol is called the “Rod of Asclepius”, this was the god of healing and medicine for the Greeks. In modern times it is used to symbolize MEDICINE AND HEALING. This symbol is used by so many organizations worldwide (in all countries) not just Zambia.
    Don’t worry, this is just a common international symbol which means Medicine and Healing.

      Makasa , the fact that it has been in existence for many years does not necessarily qualify it to be right .To me a snake is a symbol of rebellion to good order of Almighty God and it was cursed and it can never have good favor to associate it with well being of humanity. Even as it is on the emblem just like in its natural habitat a snake does not give anyone peace so where does the healing come from .Paganism was widely used in the olden days without much scrutiny and therefore we must start discarding some of these things as we develop deeper understanding of biblical truth .A symbol of a green fresh leaf can give hope and healing or just a drop of water .

        Before you say anything please do your research. Some of you are using gadgets made by non Christians are you going to discard them too?
