Friday 29 June 2019 afforded me a noble opportunity to fufil my acceptance of the Nation Publications Sleepover Challenge at Likoma Health Centre. The Nkhata Bay - Likoma Island lake journey to raise funds for Safe Motherhood Initiative was an assignment that left me with a very broken spirit. Truth be told, this was the most heart rending trip I have ever experienced in a long time. An adventure of its own horror, but eye opener on the pains experienced by mothers and their newly-born babies stranded on a land surrounded by waters.

The Boat ride and welcome at the dock - mmmhh a story for another day titled ‘Living at Likoma Island - the Hawaii of Malawi (or is it, or can it be?)’

In January 2019, the Medical Aid Society of Malawi (MASM) migrated its operations to a new and more robust IT System. The new system known as Holistic Insurance Platform (HIP) is now in place and is being used for membership management, claims processing and payments as well as management of queries.

Speaking recently at MASM House in Blantyre, CEO Sydney Chikoti said the new HIP System has improved the way things are done at MASM as it has improved the turn-around time for claims processing and payment.

“With HIP, we are able to process claims and make payments faster than before. Our operations have been streamlined such that we are capable of making more than one payment to service providers in a month,” said Chikoti.
