The Resident Doctors Association of Zambia has anticipated a rise in malnutrition cases due to the fall in maize production this year.

Association President Dr. Brian Sampa said maize being the staple food of Zambia which most of the people rely on, whenever there is a shortage, malnutrition cases are expected to rise.

To this effect Dr. Sampa called on the government to find alternative ways of supplying maize to the people so as to prevent the rise in the cases.

“They need to ensure that they put in measures which are going to prevent the malnutrition cases from going up and the only way is finding alternative ways of supplying maize to the people,” he said.
