The United Apostolic Faith church has urged sect members to embrace the use of medicine in order to reduce health related deaths.

This came out at the Pass-Over Feast held by the United Apostolic Faith in the capital.

Despite the call by the medical fraternity for members of the apostolic sect to embrace medical treatment, some are paying a deaf ear citing that it is against their belief.

Addressing congregants, United Apostolic Faith Bishop Busani Sibanda urged members of his church to heed the government’s call for apostolic members to embrace clinical medication.

“There is need for Christians to have medication to avoid diseases that result in excessive deaths,” said Bishop Sibanda.

Elder of the United Apostolic Faith Africa Mazonde encouraged women to go for cervical cancer screening.

“Due to an increase of diseases such as cervical cancer affecting women there is need for proper monitoring,” Mazonde said.

Medication is important in the world because it reduces excessive deaths.
