In February 2018, the new Medical Assistant house in Dickson health centre was finalised and the inauguration took place on March 1st. This construction is the result of a partnership between the Dickson health centre team, the Lilongwe District Health Services, the Mitundu Health Area, Traditional Authorities and Inter Aide. This house has allowed the allocation of a second Medical Assistant to the health centre, who is a critical staff member as s/he conducts medical consultation for children and adults. Dickson health centre covers more than 43,000 people and receives over 300 patients everyday. The presence of this second Medical Assistant is expected to reduce waiting time and improve health care.
